Glenbrook hoops off to solid start in MAIS

The Glenbrook Apaches and Lady Apaches are still early in the hoops season, but so far so good.

The Apaches are 1-1, having split a pair of games against Word of God Academy and Central School, while the Lady Apaches are 1-0 having matched up against only the Central Lady Pioneers.

In the Apaches first game against Word of God, a 71-46 win, senior guard Da’maza Robinson exploded for 23 points to lead the way, followed by JC Brown and Thomas Parnell with 13 a piece.

In their second outing, the Apaches didn’t fare quite as well, falling 52-32 against the Pioneers. Glenbrook struggled from the field on the road, with Robinson once again leading the way, but this time with only 8 points. Parnell and Joseph Kidd both pitched in 5 points.

“The boys played hard and gave great effort,” Glenbrook head coach Rob Chase said. “But we could not get any shots to fall. We have to work on the quality of shots we take and try to get the ball inside better. We also have to run the plays correctly and trust in our process.”

For the Lady Apaches, their season-opening win over Central couldn’t have gone much better, winning 43-9.

Senior Kannon Butler led the team with 10 points, while fellow seniors Kate Marvin and Amelia Christy each added 9 points.

“I was happy with the girls effort and performance,” Chase said. “It was our first game and I thought they played hard.”

The Glenbrook boys returns to action Monday night when they travel to Monroe for a matchup with CHA Monroe.

The Lady Apaches will be back on the court Friday Nov. 17 against Claiborne Academy.
