FARMERVILLE – The Glenbrook Apache baseball team got their season started Tuesday at the Union Christian Academy Tournament, taking on River Oaks in their first live action of the year.

The Apaches sent a young lineup onto the field under first year head coach Blake Sorey, starting a pair of eighth graders and only one senior.

River Oaks got the best of Glenbrook in their first game, 4-2.

For Glenbrook, the bats were predictably cold to begin the season, as they managed just five hits on the night.

The Apaches sent Nick Mourad to the mound on opening night, and despite taking the loss he pitched well, totaling five innings pitched, four strikeouts, gave up six hits and four runs (one earned).

At the plate, Tyler Perryman went 1-3 with a single, Mourad went 1-3 with a single and run scored, Parker Christy added a single, Beau Branch finished 1-2 with a single, Joseph Kidd was 1-2 with a single and Colt Wilson scored on run after reaching on error.

The Apaches took on Franklin Academy Wednesday, falling 12-2.

In this game, Glenbrook had an even tougher time reaching base, getting one-hit by the Franklin Academy pitcher.

Colt Wilson had the only hit for the Apaches and took the loss on the mound.

The Apaches will be back in action Friday when they head back to Farmerville to take on Claiborne Academy at 4:30 p.m.
