From the opening seconds of the game Friday night, South Kortright’s Tori Rockefeller had her eye on the rim. And, when the SK guard launched the ball in the air, she rarely missed. Rockefeller scored 24 points to lead New York State’s top rank­ed Class D girls’ basketball team to a 50-14 Delaware League championship over Davenport.
