Lady Rockets open season with victory over Hillsboro

By Wade Linville –

The Fayetteville-Perry Lady Rockets opened their season on a positive note Nov. 28, as they took on the Hillsboro Lady Indians to capture a 55-47 victory.
The Lady Rockets were led in scoring by sophomore guard Cecilia Murphy, who racked up 20 points to go along with eight rebounds, seven steals, and three assists in an outstanding performance.
Also shooting for double figures in the win was sophomore forward Hannah Wiederhold, who finished with 15 points to go along with five steals, one block, and two assists.
Fayetteville senior Taylor Cornett shot for 14 points in the Lady Rocket victory while also pulling down three rebounds and dishing out one assist.
The Lady Rockets were scheduled to begin Southern Hills Athletic Conference play on Thursday, Dec. 1 with a road game against the Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington Lady Jays who fell tow Williamsburg in their season opener on Nov. 26 at Ripley.
“I felt the ladies never lost their focus with the change of venues and being their first game of the year,” Fayetteville-Perry head coach Toby Sheets said following his Lady Rockets’ win over Hillsboro. “For me, personally, it was like 1988 all over again being in that gym.”
“We played hard and gave it our all, which is what we preach daily,” Sheets added. “Hillsboro is a much improved basketball team with a nice mix of size and speed. It was a good start to the season for this year’s Lady Rockets.”
The Lady Rockets are back on their home court Monday, Dec. 5 as they play host to the Manchester Lady Greyhounds for a league contest.
