BASTROP – The Glenbrook Apaches and Lady Apaches hit the road Tuesday bound for Bastrop to take on the Prairie View Academy Spartans in the first game of the district 6AA schedule.
Both teams entered the night with plenty of confidence, fresh off a pair of wins against East Texas Christian School at home last week.
In the boys game, Glenbrook fought hard, but poor shooting never gave the Apaches a chance in a 55-34 loss.
The Apaches shot just 18 percent from the field and 34 percent from the free-throw line in their worst statistical outing of the season to date.
“We are struggling offensively right now,” Glenbrook boys head coach Jeff Dalton said. “When you shoot 18 percent and 34 percent from the free-throw line, it’s hard to win that way. We also got badly out-rebounded.”
Da’maza Robinson was the only Apache in double figures, finishing with 13 points to lead the way. Joseph Windham added eight points for Glenbrook.
The Apaches will regroup and try to get back on track Friday against Union Christian Academy at home.
The Glenbrook Lady Apaches ran their record to 12-0 with a 39-22 victory over the Prairie View Lady Spartans.
The Lady Apaches continue to play outstanding defense this season, holding yet another opponent under 30 points.
“It was a good win for us,” Lady Apache head coach Rendi Dillard said. “They tried to make a run in the fourth quarter but we held them off. We still need to make some improvements in certain areas, but we will get there. It was nice to to get the win in our first district game.”
Olivia Dalton led the Lady Apaches, going for seven points and 10 rebounds, followed by Carsin Spurlock with seven points of her own. Kara Bryce added six points.
