Girls basketball

Rockridge 51, Princeton 23: Zoe Mead left her mark in her Senior Night game at Prouty Gymnasium Monday. The Princeton senior scored a game-high 12 points with seven blocked shots and seven rebounds, but it wasn’t enough as the Tigresses went down in defeat to the Rockets (18-8).

“That was one of the best all-around games Zoe’s had. She really dominated in the paint blocking shots and shined on Senior Night,” PHS coach Kevin Hieronymus said.

Mead was joined by classmate Kelly Schmidt for Senior Night honors.

“Zoe and Kelly were two of just three seniors who came out for basketball as freshmen and the only two to play all four years. I commend them for their dedication to our program and wish them all the best,” Hieronymus said.

Marquette 40, Hall 33: The Lady Crusaders outscored the Lady Devils 15-5 in the second half to take a 21-17 halftime lead and pushed ahead to victory in nonconference play Monday at Red Devil Gymnasium.

Freshman Hunter Galassi led Hall (7-15) with 10 points and sisters Ellie and Becca Herrmann added seven each.

Kewanee 59, St. Bede 47: The Boiler Girls opened up a 25-20 halftime by doubling up on the Lady Bruins with a 20-10 third-quarter surge. Raeshonda Chandler led Kewanee with 20 points and Sami Siemers added 16. Hanna Bima had 10 points and Raley Mauck nine for St. Bede (11-16, 5-5).

St. Bede won the sophomore game 34-33 in overtime behind Julia Pohar (10 points).
