STERLING, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF)–There are heartbreaking postseason losses, and there are HEARTBREAKERS. This one was the latter for Rockford Lutheran. The Crusaders came up a point short Monday night at the 2A Sterling Super-Sectional losing to Taylor Ridge Rockridge 60-59.

The Crusaders were down one point as the final seconds ticked away. They had the ball in the hands of their All-State guard Walt Hill Jr. Hill rushed a deep three-point shot from the sideline while well-defended. It struck the front of the rim and bounced away and with it so went the Crusaders’ season.

This is the second straight year they’ve been ousted from the Super-Sectional in Sterling by Rockridge. The Crusaders final record is 26-10.
