Freshmen host Tourney
Schulte joins Sophs
The sign on ihc wall, colored crimson and adorned with gold letter, read "Rock Island Haskethall-the pride of our community".
The basis of Rock Island basketball began at the freshmen level with the Red and Gold teams.
The Gold team, coached by Norm Albrighton. finished the year with a tournament hosted by both freshmen teams. The Golds came out with a fourth place in the tourney, to end their season with a 6-13 season record. "This team showed a lot of promise and should help create a strong sophomore team." stated Coach Albrighton.
The opposing Red team, coached by Mike Brown, concluded their season with a first place in their tourney. The team finished the season with a 19-1 record, losing their one game by a mere three points. Coach Brown shared the same promising speculations of a strong sophomore team in the following year.
While the freshmen battled it out in the year-end tourney, the sophomores fought to instill the ability of Coach Larry Schulte and his first year as head sophomore coach. The sophomores captured the first place title at the East Moline tourney over the holiday vacation; the team gave up just three losses throughout their season. Standout sophs Dave Carr. Mark Borchcrding, and Chuck Ledbetter earned places on the varsity team as well as their spots on the Pebbles.

Freshmen create new team
"Lee’s McWin" was the varsity winning slogan before each basketball game. The language was acquired by traveling to McDonald's on most road trips that the team took.
The first freshmen girls basketball team at Rocky took to the court. Gary Anderson, who had been coaching at Edison Junior High School, was hired as the coach for the team. "This team is as well balanced as any other team I have ever been around, through these kids I see a bright future for the Rocky girls' basketball program," Coach Anderson pointed out. The team was approved by the school board on the recommendation of Jack Whan and varsity Coach Ed Swag-gard.
Jill Sawin, teacher at Francis Willard, was also hired, by the school board to coach the girls sophomore team. "I think the team is highly skilled with a lot of potential." Coach Swaggard assured, "we have many goals we still have to conquer.” he continued.
The team conquered the regional , of last year's season, but lost in the fnal round of the sectionals. The returning players bounced back from the loss and inspired a winning record.
