On January 9, 2018, Astronaut high played Rockledge high girls in basketball. The game took place at Rockledge high school. Before the game happened, there was a lot of bickering back and forth on social media between the teams. Basically just downing each other before seeing each other play.
“We are all here to play the game, I didn’t understand what all the arguing was for. They kept posting how they were going to win and we aren’t that good. Some of us retaliated, but then we stopped and realized we are better than that,” junior Daiza Moses said
As the game went on, the score kept getting tied which led them to go into overtime and get an extra 4 minutes on the clock.
“I didn’t really pay them no mind, it was a good game overall. It was really intense and they were very aggressive towards us” senior Jaylan Barton said.
Someone on the Rockledge team scored the winning shot with 17 seconds left on the clock. The final score was 71 to 69.
“They only won by two points, it’s not like they blew us out. They were posting a dead eagle on snapchat after the game but we didn’t feed into it,” junior Jayda Hughes said.
