Fayetteville’s Gabby Jones stands at third base after smacking a triple during a Lady Rocket win.

Coming off their May 11 win, the Lady Rockets geared up to face No. 3 seed Cincinnati Christian School, and who would have guessed that it the Fayetteville win would come in such dominating fashion. The Lady Rockets rolled to a 22-1 victory to upset Cincinnati Christian in a post season tournament bout that ended in five innings by mercy rule at Indian Hill High School.
The Lady Rockets held a14-7 overall record after Tuesday’s win over Cincinnati Christian School and were scheduled to face Riverside in the Southwest District Division IV finals at Eaton High School on May 20.
