Under the second year of coaching by ferry Leggett and Whitey Verstrate the " Rocks " , had another super excellent season, with a record of 16 and 8; which is better than any other Quad-City Metro team. fust reading this can not even come close to describing the spirit these two men have brought to the Rock. As for the team, it consisted mostly of very talented seniors, with 6 hustling juniors always at the starters heels. Seniors who contributed greatly to the Rock cause were: John Foley, Kirk Lawsoni, Dave Plaisance, Mark Wise, Paul Osborn, and Tom Thorton. Proving that Rocks stand out were John Foley, Mark Wise, and Paul Osborn who made the Quad-City All Metro 1st and 2nd teams respectively, plus Kirk Lawson who received an honorable mention. The Rocks ' record of 16 wins and 8 losses contained many heartbreakers, especially in post-season play. The AA Regional was held at Moline, Alleman losing the first game to Fast Moline 64 to 65, leaving the Rocks against the Maroons. The Rocks came back from an 18 point dificit to tie the game up at 70, sending the game into double overtime. The first overtime ending in a tie again at 72 all. The second overtime Hallstrom shot and hit two for Moline with 11 seconds to go. That ' s the way the season ended, the Rocks just couldn ' t get two, losing 72 to 74 . " Get down tonight baby!
