The Rockies

The Rockies rocked the socks off their season with an undefeated regular season, a 12-2 overall record for the Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association Rookie league. The baseball team, coached by Chase Luberger (pictured), and (not pictured) Jeff Petersen, Kelly Belcher, Coleby Weinstock, and Nate Alford, finished in third place after losing to the Astros during playoffs. That game was the team’s first loss of the season. They played the Blue Jays for a second time in the consolation bracket. The Blue Jays ended up defeating the team and went on to win the gold bracket in extra innings. The Rockies were the number one seed in the Gold Bracket for the SBMSA playoffs and the top team for Wilchester Elementary School. They scored 175 runs in 10 games while only striking out 12 times. Chase and Jeff were selected as the all-star team coaches because of this accomplishment. Player Jeffrey Alford got a new puppy towards the end of the season and named him Rocky after the team. Pictured are (top row, from left) Sean Tierney, Reid Foreman, Nate Gardiner, Coach Chase, Oliver Luberger, Fields Petersen, Zachary Davies; (front row, from left) Max Belcher, Cullen Weinstock, Preston Harrison, Jeffery Alford, and Brooks Magee.
