Fall is still several weeks away but the fall sports season at Rochester High School will be getting started in earnest next week.

GIRLS GOLF - Weather permitting, the RHS girls golf team was the first to open the season with a triangular meet Wednesday, August 21 against Normal U. High and SHG.

Coach Jeff Hill, the longest-tenured of any of the RHS coaches in his 23rd year at the helm, has a good returning cast among the 12 players out.

Schnepp, a junior, tied for 27th place as an individual at State.
