The Glenbrook boys and girls basketball teams picked up wins over Taylor (AR) Monday night to wrap up the regular season.
In the boys game, the Apaches won 74-67.
It appeared that the Apaches were playoff-bound after defeating River Oaks at home last Friday night, but a three-way tie sent the decision to a point differential tiebreaker that the Apaches lost, ending their hopes of a playoff run at their home gym.
Still, the Apaches have plenty to be proud of this season, including Monday night’s win.
“The guys played well tonight,” Glenbrook head coach Jeff Dalton said. “We ran our full-court press most of the game and we fouled more than I would like, but it was effective in the end.”
In the final quarter, the tired legs of the Taylor players showed up and Glenbrook was able to show out.
“We sped them up to a pace they don’t like and they made some bad decisions late,” Dalton said. “On the offensive end I thought the guys were really good. We played with a lot of enthusiasm.”
Cade Conterez led the Apaches with 14 points, Da’maza Robinson had 12 points and Lemoris Jackson Jr. and Joseph Windham added 10 points each.
Senior Connor Chase had 13 points and fellow senior Garrett Sanders scored 10 points to go with 16 rebounds in the final game of their high school careers.
“I’m happy for Garrett and Connor,” Dalton said. “They both had good games. We’ll miss them both next season and I appreciate all they did for this program these past three years.”
The Apaches return four starters for next season.
In the girls game, the Glenbrook Lady Apaches jumped out to a huge lead over the Taylor girls, cruising to a 50-20 win.
It was senior night for the ladies as well, and the two Lady Apaches made the most of it.
Carsin Spurlock scored 19 points to lead all scorers, and Catherine Willis scored four points and had four assists while playing good minutes for Glenbrook.
“Both our seniors played great,” Lady Apache head coach Rendi Dillard said.
“We were a little sluggish at first, but settled in and never gave up the lead. Overall, it was a great game for everyone and all the girls got to play valuable minutes.”
Olivia Dalton and Kate Marvin each scored seven points for the Lady Apaches.
