The Forrest Lady Rockets did something they had never done before, they traveled to just inside the Lawrence County line and beat the Summertown Lady Eagles Saturday night 53-34 to complete the season sweep over their always tough and formidable 12A opponent.
Gaby Bussell, who led the Lady Rockets by scoring 13 points in the contest, said, "We have never beaten them in their gym and to conquer that feat is an awesome feeling."
The Lady Eagles came into the game with a record of 12-6, but they had defended their own gym with a 6-1 record before the loss to the Lady Rockets.
Bussell wasted no time sending a message that this would be the year to break the jinx. She scored the Lady Rockets' first five points on a spinning bucket down low and a three ball from the corner.
