  • EARLIER: Receiver’s catches big for whole team

    When the Rocket offense started clicking last week against North Hardin, it was no coincidence that Tavis Elzy was helping lead the charge.

    Elzy, a 6-foot, 160-pound junior wide receiver, had nine catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in last Friday’s victory after having just one catch for 9 yards in the season-opening loss to Bryan Station.

    The girls then reversed that trend with a 2-0 victory at home against Meade County on Monday. The Lady Rockets held in the opening game, 25-23, and then ripped the visitors, 25-16, in the second.
