About this Article
As usual, the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team brought its fast game Tuesday night to the Ken Carter Gymnasium in Arlington Heights. And no one was faster than guard Jackie Kemph. The 5-foot-5 junior sped to the basket for multiple fastbreak layups and short bank shots — hitting 12 of 16 from the field — for a career-high 31 points as Meadows did nothing to harm its 72 points-per-game team scoring average. The Mustangs won their Mid-Suburban East opener 75-57 over Hersey, using a 16-4 second-quarter run to pull away for a 34-20 edge at intermission.
