The Randolph High School girls basketball team hosted and beat Medford last Tuesday night, 40-25.
Pressure defense allowed the Rockets to take a 17-13 halftime lead, and made some adjustments in the second half offensively which allowed some good looks at the basket. "The girls did a great job of knocking down their shots," commented coach Dennis Trom.
Carolyn Meyer and Abby Meyer led the team in scoring with 13 and 10 points, Wendy Splichal added five, and Angie Hoey and Ashleigh Dralle had four points each.
On Friday the Rockets traveled to Waterville for their final Gopher Conference game of the season, and fell behind early, 10-0. RHS trailed 25-12 at the half, and lost the game 62-42.
"We couldn't get going on offense to start the game," Trom said. "We got better in the second half, but just couldn't knock down any outside jumpers. That made it tough to get anything going inside."
Sami Bey had a strong game, with 19 points and 15 rebounds. Abby Meyer ended up with 12 points, six rebounds and five steals.
Randolph was at Cleveland on Tuesday, and they host Janesville on Thursday. Sub-section playoffs start on Tuesday, Feb. 25.
