  • Rockets hold off Eastern, 41-34
  • EARLIER: Lady Rockets headed...

    MIDDLETOWN -- With four of the final groups having finished play, the Lady Rockets were right in the thick of it during a blustery day at the Region 5 Golf Tournament on Monday.

    The Lady Rockets trailed Sacred Heart but had a slim two-stroke lead on Oldham County. It appeared that the Lady Rockets wouldn’t defend their region title, but a trip back to Bowling Green and the State Tournament was still in reach.

    Sawyer Abshire scored twice to lead the Rockets on senior night.

    “Really, we dominated the game,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “It was good because we got to play everybody, and it was really an easy win.”
