DEKALB — The Rochelle Township High School freshmen girls basketball team hasn’t won a lot of games, but the girls are picking it up at the right time as they narrowly defeated the Lady Barbs in Dekalb, 36-32.

“We had another slow start, but at half time I challenged the kids to run a full-court press,” Rochelle head coach John Gleissner said. “They pulled it off. Ten of 20 steals came in the fourth quarter, and nine different players scored. It was great for them to get another win.”

Marissa Gonzales led Rochelle in scoring with 11 points. She was assisted by Brooke Kanas who added eight points and Lexie Watson and Derianna Thompson who each scored four points.
