LIBERTY, Mississippi – The Glenbrook Lady Apaches saw their season come to a bittersweet end at the South State Tournament after three hard-fought games.
The Lady Apaches lost their opening game of the tournament in extra innings to host Amite School Center, 3-2.
Facing elimination, Glenbrook had a tough task in taking on a Prairie View team that had gotten the better of them in their two previous meetings.
That didn’t phase a young Lady Apaches team, as they came out and dismantled the Spartans 14-1 to stay alive.
Alyssa Martin led the way in that victory, going 4-5 with four singles and three RBI. Hannah Mosley fnished with a single and three RBI, Amber Lovitt had three singles and one RBI, while Carsin Spurlock, Kate Marvin, Kara Bryce and Faith Earnhardt added RBI singles.
Martin was brilliant in the circle, tossing all six innings, allowing three hits, one run and striking out six Lady Spartans.
In the final game of their season, the girls fell to Sylva Bay Academy, 8-6.
Glenbrook led most of the game before Sylva Bay mounted a comeback with a five run fifth inning.
The Lady Apaches end their season with a 20-10 record and finished third in a competitive district 6AA.
Glenbrook will say goodbye to four-year starter Carsin Spurlock who finishes her senior season with a .312 batting average to go with 20 RBI and 11 extra-base hits.
Look for Glenbrook to be back for another run next year with eight of nine starters returning.
