LOWELLVILLE OH- The start of a new season is always exciting. However in Lowellville the adrenaline was pushed to the max as Vinny Ballone went for 1,000 career points. The future Rocket hall of famed needed 14 points coming in to the night to seal the deal. He doubled that goal finishing with 28 in the Rockets 67-45 win over Crestview.

At halftime, Ballone went to the locker room with 13 points knowing his next bucket would be a special one. He didn’t have to wait too long as his next shot came to start the third quarter.  Ballone is now the 14th Rocket in the basketball program (boys and girls) to eclipse 1,000 points.

Lowellville is off until next week when they travel to Southeast. Crestview is back in action on Friday at Jackson Milton.
