Peer Partners at R.C. Waters

Peer Partners at R. C Waters Elementary School: On the right is Chelsea Arden, kindergartener, and at left is Abby Hutton, second grader.  

The kindergarten and second grade classrooms at R.C. Waters Elementary School in Oak Harbor are peer partners for the school year.  This partnership creates many opportunities throughout the year.  The second graders are able to be leaders and lead by example.  This allows them to gain confidence as they complete tasks together.  The kindergartners are able to use the second graders as examples for good behavior, manners, and what team work looks like. It’s a great opportunity for the students to practice skills together.  

Each kindergarten/second grade pair work with their buddy at various times throughout the school year.  Most recently the second graders worked with their kindergarten buddies to learn letters and do a Thanksgiving craft.  The students enjoy working with others at a different grade level and it’s great to see the waves they give each other as they pass by in the halls.

Rathbun's 3-pointer at the buzzer wins it for the Rockets

After defeating Edison in close fashion last week, the Rockets did themselves one better this time around, beating Huron, 45-42, on a buzzer beater by sophomore center Maddy Rathbun.

Following a three-pointer by the Tigers' Audra Wisehart that tied the score at 42 with three seconds to play, Oak Harbor drew up a play that was designed to go to forward Andrea Cecil. The ball was inbounded to Rathbun, but the Huron defender came off her to double Cecil, leaving Rathbun open for the shot, which she made as time expired.

It was the culmination of a back-and-forth game, one that saw the Tigers rally after trailing until the 30-second mark of the third quarter.

The Rockets controlled things early, taking a 13-4 lead after the first quarter before heading into the half with a 21-14 advantage.

With Oak Harbor (3-2, 2-1 SBC) ahead 35-27, Huron went on an 11-0 run to take 38-35 lead early in the fourth quarter. 

After a basket by Emma Barney and a Tiger free throw gave Huron a 39-37 advantage, Cecil took over, scoring five straight points. She had a steal that led to a layup and a free throw to give the Rockets the lead, and two more free throws put her team ahead 42-39 with three minutes to play before Wisehart tied it up.

Oak Harbor's balanced scoring attack featured three players in double figures. Rathbun led the way with 13 points, followed by Barney (12) and Cecil (11).

The Rocket defense was key, allowing just six points in the final quarter after the Tigers had scored 22 in the third quarter.
