Rocky Hill Claims Second Place in Mariner Classic
- RHS 26, Fisher Island 22 in first game
- RHS 15, Capital Prep Harbor 32 in championship match
With a new coach and a new squad, Girls Varsity Basketball had a strong showing in their home tournament. In their first match up, they out-shot a competitive Fisher Island team. However in the championship game, they faced a talented Capital Prep Harbor with height and a deep bench. Kaeley Zito was the high scorer for Rocky Hill in each of the contests, with Johnette Williams playing strong in the center.
“This weekend was a great tune-up and we were able to see how we are coming along as a team,” commented Coach Tobey. “Against Fishers Island, our young players showed a lot of poise and maintained a lead throughout the game. In the Championship we competed well against an extremely athletic team. We gave a great defensive effort in the first half, in the second half, Capital Prep used their strengths and their size advantage showed in the rebounding column.”
The Mariners host Williams School on Wednesday.
