BASEKTBALL: All eyes were on Jessica Lorraway on Saturday as she powered across the court at Rockhampton's Hegvold Stadium.

The talented Rocky basketball player led the Rocky under-18 women's squad to back-to-back victories at the Central District Basektball Carnival.

On Saturday morning, the Rocky team defeated southern rivals Gladstone 77-39 before backing up later that day to clinch a second 91-45 victory and the CDC title.

With 49 points on her scorecard for the two matches, Lorraway scored more points than Gladstone were able to in each of their games and stood head and shoulders above the rest in terms of baskets scored.

Team-mate Katelyn Lynch also impressed with a total of 29 while Alicia Smith finished the weekend on 18 points.

In the under-18 men's competition, Rockhampton's two squads (A and B) took on teams from Gladstone, Bundaberg and Emerald for the CDC title across two days.

Rocky's B team got off to a Rocky start on Saturday when they were defeated 124-18 by Gladstone.

The squad bounced back for their second match, against Bundaberg, and put in an encouraging effort despite going down 92-48.

Third time seemed to be the charm for the B team though when they clinched their first win of the carnival taking down Emerald 90-49.

Rocky's A squad also had mixed results going down 82-62 to Bunderberg in their first match and defeating Emerald by an impressive 117-34 in their second match on Saturday before backing up on Sunday only to be defeated by Gladstone 104-73.

The final under-18 match of the carnival yesterday afternoon saw the Rocky A and B teams pitted against each other for third and fourth position with Rocky A defeating Rocky B 88-54.
