BASKETBALL: Rockets batter Trojans
BOTKINS â€” The Anna Rockets girls basketball team remained undefeated by easily taking care of Botkins in a 58-35 win Tuesday.
Anna jumped out to a big lead early, capturing an 18-7 lead in the first period and never looked back.
â€śThey are a very good team,â€ť Botkins varsity coach Don Mack said. â€śThey get up and down the court in a hurry. We were able to force them into some outside shots but it wasnâ€™t enough.â€ť
Annaâ€™s quickness got them plenty of second shots, as they pulled down 13 offensive rebounds in the contest.
Christine Johnson notched a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds for Botkins.
Anna is now 8-0 on the season and is 5-0 in Shelby County League play. Botkins fell to 4-6 and 2-3 with the loss.
The Trojans enjoy a long break and play again Jan.7 when they host Fairlawn.
Anna won the JV game, 40-30.
