Apaches begin playoffs

The Glenbrook Apaches begin their playoff run today in A South State Tournament being held at Claiborne Academy.

The Apaches finished their regular season with a 24-3 overall record and 12-0 in district, have the #1 seed and will be facing the #4 seed from District 6A, Amite.

"Right now, the way we look at it is that everyone's record is 0-0," Apache head coach Chris Kourvelas said. "Forget about our record. Everyone is fighting to win, especially this first game because no team wants to end their season. Amite does not want to travel all this way and simply go home, so I am sure they will put up a fight and it could be a struggle for us."

The way this post season tournament works is that the loser of this game goes home...season ends. Winner will play Friday night vs. the winner of the # 2 seed Tallulah and # 3 seed Claiborne.

"This is a must win for the Apaches to advance not only to the Semi-Finals of South State, but a win will qualify us for the A State Tournament next week," Kourvelas said. "I am hoping we stay focused, our nerves calm down a bit and we simply go out and play Glenbrook ball."

The Apaches tip off at 5:15 p.m. The Lady Apaches will play Tallulah at 6:30 p.m. in the same tournament.
