Rashad Rochelle (Springfield Quarterback) The lights were the brightest last Friday and super sophomore Rashad Rochelle stepped up huge in a Springfield High victory. “Train” accounted for seven total TDs with three on the ground and four through the air to lead the Senators to the 54-42 win.
Spencer Parker (U-High Running Back) Maybe the craziest stat line we saw from last Friday came from the U-High’s Spencer Parker. The Pioneer running back had a whopping 385 yards on the ground along with five touchdowns. Parker even tossed a TD in U-High’s win over Southeast.
Grant Ripperda (Williamsville Running Back) After surpassing the 2,000 career rushing yard mark in week five, Rippy came back with another strong performance against Pleasant Plains. He totaled 138 on just eight carriers along with three scores to lead the Bullets in their 63-13 win to move to 6-0.
Gavin Roegge (Jacksonville Running back) The Crimsons needed a win to keep their playoff dreams alive in week is, and Gavin Roegge was a big part of making that happen. The hard hitting running back had 103 yards on the ground along with three scores in Jacksonville’s 46-14 win over Lanphier.
Wade Jostes ( Maroa-Forsyth Quarterback) We’ve seen Wade improve each week the season goes on in his starting quarterback role for the Trojans and in week six it was no different. He showed off the wheels running for two scores of 9 and 17 yards and tossed a pair of TDs as well. He was a big reason the Trojans put up nearly 500 yards of offense in a 56-0 win over PORTA.
Steven Boucher (Springfield Receiver) The senior captain had a game to remember against the Cyclones. Boucher caught seven balls for a total of 133 yards. He also snagged two touchdowns one being a circus juggling catch. To seal the deal, Boucher picked off an Isaiah Thompson pass deep in Cyclones territory to preserve the SHS win.
Carter Formea (Springfield Soccer) Sure SHG vs Springfield was a thriller on the football field, but did you see their soccer matchup? The Cyclones and Senators brought the energy that saw both squads tied 1-1 at the end of regulation. SHS would finish things off with a minute and a half in OT number one as Carter Formea would take matters into his own feet and fire a goal for the Senator win.
Faith Washko (SHG Volleyball) The Cyclones had themselves a weekend winning five out of five matches to bring home the Pekin Tournament championship. SHG never dropped a set and a big reason for that was libero Faith Washko. Washko totaled 71 digs to lead the Cycs and achieve all-tournament honors.
Lexi Onsrud (U-High Golf) There was no doubt who would bring home the CS8 girls golf title as the Pioneers claimed the top three finishers in the tournament. Lexi Onsrud was on another level for U-High taking the top individual spot with a -1 on the day.
Marley Smith (Auburn Volleyball) In one of the most dramatic Sangamo games we’ve seen so far this year, Auburn took down Maroa-Forsyth in a three set thriller. Sophomore Marley Smith was a huge reason for the Trojans win as her kills and ability to block slowed a high powered Maroa attack. The Auburn win gave Maroa their first Sangamo loss of the season.
Adrien Barrett (Athens Volleyball) We all know about Athens Caroline Lendy and rightfully so, but Adrien Barrett is also one of the best hitters in the Sangamo. She was a force on the outside as the Warriors got back on track with a dominant two set win over PORTA in conference play.
