High school girls basketball: Minden, Glenbrook make playoffs

The Minden Lady Tiders and Glenbrook Lady Apaches have qualified for the playoffs.

Minden (11-14) is the No. 25 seed in non-select Division II. The Lady Tiders visit Bastrop (21-7) in the first round Thursday.

This is the first season there are divisions instead of classes in the playoffs for non-select teams. 

The LHSAA Executive Committee in June voted to change the definition of a select school. The end result was that many former non-select schools were moved to the select category, achieving a greater balance between the two.

Minden is in the playoffs for the first time since 2021. The Lady Tiders lost in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs.

The top 28 teams in the final power ratings in each of the five non-select divisions qualified for the playoffs.

The top 24 teams in each of the four select divisions qualified.

Glenbrook (6-14) is the No. 23 seed in select Division IV. The Lady Apaches will travel to Franklin to play No. 10 Hanson Memorial (19-11) in the first round.

This is the first season Glenbrook was eligible for the playoffs. As a first-year LHSAA school, Glenbrook was ineligible last season.
