Rocket teams at P-C

The Ar-We-Va girls and boys wrapped up Rolling Valley Conference play on Monday night with a doubleheader sweep of Paton-Churdan at Churdan.

In the opener, Ar-We-Va landed three girls in double figures, as the Rockets picked up a 58-47 victory.

In the nightcap, the Ar-We-Va boys also put three players in double figures, as Matt Wilken’s Rocket club stayed perfect on the year with a 79-51 triumph.

Girls’ results

Monday’s contest was the regular season finale for Ar-We-Va, which finished 11-5 in the RVC play and moved to 13-7 overall on the season.

Ar-We-Va led 30-17 at halftime, but P-C outscored its hosts 15-6 in the third quarter to pull to within 36-32 to start the fourth.

Dan Kock’s Rocket club then outscored the host Rockets 22-15 over the final eight minutes for the win.

Emilee Danner tallied her 15th double-double of the season, leading Ar-We-Va with 21 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists and six steals.

Leslie Luft added 14 points and two boards, while Emily Hinners had 11 points. Jadeyn Smith also had eight points and seven boards for the winners.

"We led from start to finish and the girls did a good job of hustling and jumping pass lanes," commented Ar-We-Va’s Kock.

"We led by 13 at halftime, but forgot to show up in the third. We stagnated on both sides of the court and let them back in the game. We put the press back on in the fourth and that got us going again," he added.

Boys’ results

The Ar-We-Va boys concluded a perfect RVC season with Monday’s 28-point rout, as Wilken’s Class 1A sixth-ranked Rockets went 16-0 in conference play, while improving to 20-0 overall.

Ar-We-Va led by only eight points at 34-26 at halftime, but then outscored P-C 45-25 in the second half to win going away.

Drew Schurke scored 18 points, grabbed three boards and handed out three assists for Ar-We-Va.
