The Glenbrook Lady Apaches are picking up where they left off in 2015.
The Lady Apaches traveled to Rayville over the weekend to compete in the season-opening Riverfield Academy Tournament, winning two of three contests to start with a 2-1 record under first-year head coach Roo Johnson.
The Lady Apaches started 2-0, giving Johnson a win in her first game against Porter’s Chapel and another in her second against Franklin Academy.
Glenbrook then fell 2-1 to Tallulah Academy in the third and final game of the tournament.
The tournament’s conclusion came early, due to severe weather in the area. However, all signs are positive coming out of the Lady Apaches first live action of the season.
It’s a good start for a team with some promise for 2016, and their new head coach applauded their efforts.
“We played really well this weekend,” Johnson said. “It was really good to see the girls out there for the first time all together and seeing them start to jell a little bit.”
Here’s a look at how the Lady Apaches fared to start the season.
