Rock Falls High School students Keyon Wolber (far left) and Dylan Leaf (second from right) lead the student section in some cheers during a varsity volleyball match at Tabor Gym on Tuesday night. The team spirit wasn’t quite enough to propel the Rockets to victory – but hey, it’s homecoming week, and school spirit is the name of the game. There’ll be plenty more of that spirit through the week, with the Powder Puff game today and the homecoming parade Thursday. The parade starts at 5:30 p.m. at the school, 101 12th Ave, and will head down West Second Street, right onto Fourth Avenue, right on Fifth Street, and right again onto Grace Avenue, ending back at the high school. The following night, the Rockets take on the Oregon Hawks at Hinders Field for a 7 p.m. game and homecoming week wraps up Saturday with the homecoming dance.
