Dallastown vs. Spring Grove

With 1 minute, 33 seconds left in Sunday’s game against Archbishop Wood, at 8:44 p.m., the Spring Grove High School basketball career of Eli Brooks was over.

There was no grand send off. No standing ovation as he was subbed out.

Instead, he just took his place on the bench, along with a number of other Rockets, following a timeout. It came moments before their season came to an end with a 71-46 loss in the PIAA Class 5-A quarterfinals to the Vikings.
