In Tuesday's West Central North boys' basketball preview, it was erroneously reported that Rockridge's last 20-win season prior to last year was in 1974 when, in fact, it was the 2003-04 season. The Rockets posted seven seasons of 20 or more wins between 1978 and 2004. The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus regret the error.
The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus care about accuracy. Mistakes occur, however. Our policy is to correct errors of fact as soon as possible.
