The Glenbrook Lady Apaches recently wrapped up their regular season schedule with a dominant 18-0 win over the River Oaks Lady Mustangs.
The win moved Glenbrook’s regular season record to 19-8 and 6-4 in district play, a solid first season under the direction of former North Webster Lady Knights head coach, Anthony Mullins.
“I know one thing,” Mullins said about Glenbrook’s fall schedule. “It’s too hot when you start this fall ball. But, this year’s group is very young, we have just one senior in Carsin Spurlock who has really done a great job of leading this team. We have a lot of young talent on this team; the future looks bright for Glenbrook softball.”
The Apaches starting pitcher all season long was Alyssa Martin, an eighth grader, and they will turn to her for a big game when the Apaches begin the playoffs this weekend.
In addition to Martin, Glenbrook has seventh grader Hannah Mosley, eighth grader Amber Lovitt, freshmen Aubrie Dickson and Faith Earnhardt, sophomores Kara Bryce and Kate Marvin and junior Megan Sims all playing key roles on this year’s team.
“I’m really proud of them,” Mullins said. “We don’t know who we’re going to be playing yet, but I’m looking forward to South State and seeing how this young team plays.”
The Apaches most likely matchup will be against tournament host Amite School Center, located in Liberty, Mississippi.
If his young group keeps their composure, Mullins believes Glenbrook can beat anyone in the tournament.
“I believe we can play with most teams,” Mullins said. “This time of year, anything is possible. I know is the future is bright for Glenbrook softball, but we want to see what we can do this year.”
