Gerald Pollard, who was the regional runner-up and a state qualifier at 135 poundes last season, has his sights set on another state-qualifying effort in the 140-pound weight class this weekend. Also, James Montoya, who was one win from making the states last winter at 119, is looking to advance in the 125-pound weight class this time around.
The Rockets will compete amongst a contingent that involves 24 teams from three conferences at this weekend's regional tourney. The individual state tournament is scheduled to take place next Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Feb. 24-25, at the Greensboro Coliseum.
