BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Gardendale Rockets set a school record last season by scoring 514 points. But 23 seniors from that team are now gone.
It’s certainly a big loss for the Rockets, but Coach Matt Plunkett expects to improve regardless. “Our players know and feel like we got a little chip on our shoulder. We have got a lot to prove you know and we can be a better team,” Coach Plunkett added, “We have improved every year the last three years from 5-5 to 8-5 to 10-3.
He says this team wants to continue the trend this year. The goal is to keep moving forward, not backwards.
