Rocket Rundown October 15 – October 21

It’s time for this week’s edition of the Rocket Rundown – your guide to Assumption Athletic Events!

Last week was a great week for JV Field Hockey.  The Rockets played in the JV Pumpkin Tournament at KCD and came out Champs.  They played Atherton and won 4-0, followed by Manual 1-0 and played Sacred Heart in the finals.  AHS beat SHA 1-0!  Congrats to the JV Field Hockey team.
Varsity Field Hockey celebrated Senior Night Wednesday the 10th with a huge win over Collegiate.  AHS won 9-0.  Congratulations to the Varsity team, and especially our Seniors!

Assumption’s Cross Country team competed in two meets over the last week and performed well.  In the Senior Classic at EP Tom Sawyer Park, the Rockets captured the team win on strong performances by Genesis Bishop, Claire O’Bryan, Claire Gibson, Renee Grendi and senior Lillie Bennett.
Over the weekend, Rocket Cross Country traveled to the Manhattan Invitational in New York and finished 4th in their race.  The JV A and JV B teams also finished 5th in their respective races.  The Assumption Varsity team had leading performances from Raelyn Willman and Lindsey Domene, while the JV Rockets were led by Cammie McIntyre, Samantha Schaefer and Emma Warren on the JV A team, and Madeline Powell, Jessica Stein and Emma Weigel on the JV B team.  Overall, 21 of 24 girls competing earned medals for their performances, so it was a strong showing for the team against schools from California, Florida and all across the northeast.

In Soccer, Varsity beat Collegiate on Monday the 8th, 7-0.  The Rockets played again Wednesday against Male for the District Championship.  AHS won 3-0.

Volleyball played Wednesday the 10th for the District Championship.  AHS beat Male (25-13, 25-15, 25-14).
