Girls Varsity Competitive Cheer · Cheer Wins OAA Red Title


Another year, another OAA Red Championship for the Rochester Competitive Cheer team. The Falcons once again brought home the OAA Red Championship, and now they have their eyes set on defending their state championship. Rochester has won their last two competitions, including impressive wins over several Top 10 programs (Adams, Stevenson, Grandville). Rochester again sits at #1 in the state rankings, after last week sitting at #4.

Both the Rochester JV and Freshmen programs also brought home OAA Titles, a complete program sweep for the Falcons.

Multiple Teams · Rochester Dominates Adams


It has been a long time coming, but the Rochester Boys Basketball team had this game circled on their calendar for a very long time. The Falcons, in front of a capacity crowd at the O’Rena at Oakland University, knocked off Adams 54-42 in the 11th Annual Crosstown Showdown. Hunter Schatler led the way, scoring a team high 23 points, and senior Ivan Barraza had a huge game pouring in 15, while junior LaMarko Gulledge chipped in 10 points. Rochester led 11-3 early in the first, before taking a 27-20 lead into half. Rochester would extend its lead in the third quarter, before emptying the bench late in the fourth, and securing their first win against rival Adams since 2012. Rochester returns to action Tuesday at home, when they will take on Lake Orion.

Multiple Teams · Girls Basketball Falls to Adams


Article Courtesy of the MIPrepZone

Normally, you put a high school kid in an unfamiliar college building, with different markings on the floor, brighter lights and a much more active shooting background, and they struggle to hit shots.

For a Rochester Adams team that’s struggled all season long to make shots, Friday’s trip to Oakland University’s Athletics Center O’rena actually had the opposite effect.

The Highlanders shot extraordinarily well, rolling to runs of 11 and 15 points to start each half of the Crosstown Showdown against rival Rochester, their 71-26 win marking a seventh straight in the series.

“I mean, it’s great to keep that tradition going. My first year as a head coach, but I’ve been a part of it for three years, and it’s always good for the seniors to continue that. … It’s always a fun game, to be here, the hype around it, to play on this floor, it’s always a good time,” said Jacki Steinacker. “I think we finally found a rhythm. We’ve been struggling to find a rhythm all year. This gym, surprisingly, we were able to find a rhythm with our shots. The floor, the lighting — it’s something they’re not used to, so to be able to come out and shoot as well as we did, definitely happy about that.”

For the Highlanders (5-8, 0-5 OAA Red), the building seemed to have little effect.

Then again, they’ve played here before, as well as other bigger facilities.

“It’s definitely not a shooter’s gym like I’m used to at Adams. Just being in this arena, it’s loud, it’s fun. It’s kind of like playing at The Palace, almost. So many seats, so many fans. It’s just fun for everyone that’s here,” said Adams senior Maggie Rogers, who’s played at the O’rena three times, The Palace once, and won the state free-throw shooting contest at Michigan State’s Breslin Center.

“Just being with everyone, having your whole school here, being the third year, it’s kind of like one last go-round, so you want to make the most of it. … You kind of want to go out with a bang, so it’s good to win the last one.”

Rogers had 23 points to lead all scorers, while Ryian Owusu added 14, Makayla Smith had 12, and Hannah Simard had 10.

Having won two of their last three coming into the game, it seemed like things were turning around a bit for the struggling Falcons (2-12, 2-5 OAA Blue).

But they fell behind 11-0 before Jenna Norgrove finally got them on the scoreboard in the final minute of the first quarter, then allowed Adams to expand its 36-18 halftime lead with a 15-0 run to start the third quarter.

“It’s very frustrating, obviously. Things have not gone the way I’ve wanted, especially to them,” Rochester coach Adam Sheldon said of losing seven in a row in the Showdown. “Just remind them that it’s high school sports, and the best thing about high school sports is that the next day is a chance to correct what didn’t go right for you tonight. … I said, ‘Hey, it’s a high school basketball game. You’re fortunate to be a part of these things. What a great event. We’ll walk out. It’s not the end of the world.’ Just think about what we need to do to get better.”

Multiple Teams · Boys Basketball Drops Game to Stoney


Rochester hosted their crosstown rival Stoney Creek, and despite a great effort that saw the Falcons go up one with just two minutes, Rochester couldn’t hold off Stoney falling 50-47. The Falcons had a shot at the buzzer to tie, but junior guard Hunter Schatler’s shot rattled in and out, and the Falcons dropped to 6-7 on the year. LaMarko Gulledge led all scorers for Rochester with 16 points.

Falcons News · 13 Student-Athletes Make College Declaration


Surrounded by family, friends, coaches and administration, 13 Rochester High School student-athletes made their college declaration on National Signing Day. This is the largest group that Mr. Beach has had at one signing, and he was extremely excited to celebrate. “This is my fourth year here at RHS, and this is by far the largest group we’ve had sign at one time”, Mr. Beach said (RHS has two signing days). Mr. Beach expanded saying, “I am so proud of our student-athletes, it takes so much hard work, dedication, discipline, and sacrifice to get to this point. While their peers were out socializing, they were practicing their crafts and focusing on their academics. This is a dream for so many, but only a few will achieve it. I’m like a proud parent cheering on our kids”.

Seated from left to right: Albert Nagy (Northwood University Baseball), Brooke Busse (Wayne State University Golf), Cate Bennett (Adrian Track), Rose Meyers (Wayne State University Softball), Veronica Haque (Oakland University Golf), Alex Stevenson (Alma Boys Lacrosse), Maddie Halsey (UT Chattanooga Volleyball), Demtri Pliakos (University of Detroit Soccer), Alex McCarthy (Siena Heights Boys Lacrosse), Tyler Frankhouse (Northwood University Baseball), Ryan Gladstone (Northwood University Baseball), Ben Compton (Olivet University Baseball), and Zy Turner (Davenport University Cheer).
