Rushville-Industry opened up their home schedule last night as they took on the Commandos from Abbingdon.  The Lady Rockets have already begun to turn a lot of heads in the area as they are a team that is showing a ton of potential and capitalizing on that potential.  With this being the first game of Praireland Conference action for the Lady Rockets, here was another chance to get things rolling on a great start and that is exactly what they did.  Abbingdon came out strong in game 1 and played neck and neck with Rushville-Industry but they just could not find an answer for the defensive play of Jenna Taber or KJ Haywood.  Those two had a stellar night on defense and at the net.  Taber finished the night with 7 kills while Haywood had 6 kills and 2 blocks.  Abbingdon’s Amanda Sandrock was finally able to find her rhythm in game 2 as she ended the night with 7 kills.  Rebecca Stipp also added 6 assists on the night for the Commandos but it would not be enough as Rushville-Industry picks up the conference victory 25-13, 26-24.  The Lady Rockets improve to 3-4 (1-0) on the season after the stellar effort from Madison Kessler.  Kessler ended the match with 17 service points and 13 assists.  The Lady Rockets will be back in action tomorrow night as they travel to Southeastern.
