JV-Squad News

In 2023 -- we do not have enough players (pitchers) for three squads.  Thus we will have a Varsity squad and a B/C-Squad team.  We will attempt to play a limited JV schedule using Varsity team members who are not starters and some B/C-Squad team members.  So stay tuned for details as we go thru season.

The only games on the JV-Squad Game Schedule tab are those extra games which are "JV only".  For most games, please refer to the B/C-Squad schedule -- which will reflect Big Nine game schedules (both B/C and JV games).  Go Rockets!

News / Updates


The Rockets 2023 season came to an end in the Section 1AAAA tournament as the Rockets lost to Northfield in an elimination game on Thursday May 25th.  On the scoreboard and the win-loss column it was a tough year for JM, but the team never hung their heads and continued to fight and compete right to the end.  A big thank you to our Varsity squad on all that you did this season.  A special thanks to our Seniors: Taylor, Halle, Sammiey and Alexa.  We wish you all the best as you move onto the next phase of your life, and look forward to watching you grow as young ladies we are all proud of.  Once a Rocket, Always a Rocket!! 

Strikeout Cancer Event

Thank you for supporting our game against Century -- our Strikeout Cancer event.  Fans are encouraged to celebrate those in their lives who are cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, and support those actively battling cancer. 

Donations in support of the event can be made to the Hope Lodge of Rochester MN using the link below.  Or to any organization of your choice.  Whether you want to make a donation for every strikeout recorded in the double-header, a set one-time gift, an ongoing gift, or as a volunteer -- together we can work together to Strikeout Cancer!

Anatomy Of Romero's Swing

Take a look at this great breakdown of one of the best hitters in softball - Sierra Romero from the University of Michigan.  A nice image of what she focuses on and feels on each swing, a video showing those points in motion.  She also discusses her mentality to her at bats.

Defying Doubt

Determination, hard work, belief in yourself can overcome doubts that others may see in you...
