JeTaun Rouse and Leah Bolton continue to lead the way for the RedHawks, but don't discount the contributions from a supporting cast that has Marist streaking toward Monday's Illinois Wesleyan Supersectional.
Marist boasts the high school girls basketball version of Batman and Robin. JeTaun Rouse and Leah Bolton lead the RedHawks’ fight for all that’s good with their explosive moves on the offensive end and their quick hands on defense. But don’t forget about the supporting cast of caped crusaders that have backed them up every step of the way during a storybook season.

The Skinny: Marist’s JeTaun Rouse played with a sore knee. She delivered a performance that left Lincoln-Way East feeling the pain of what might have been in a 52-32 RedHawk victory in the championship game of the Class 4A Sandburg Sectional.

She poured in seven straight points in a personal highlight reel-like surge that included a 3-pointer from just in front of the Marist student body and two straight steals that she turned into layups. The RedHawks used a 1-3-1 defense to prevent Lincoln-Way East from penetrating the lane and crashed the boards on offense to generate second-chance points. Patch’…
