HOMER — The Glenbrook Lady Apaches ended their season after a first round loss at the South State playoffs Tuesday night. The Lady Apaches fell, 59-51, to Tallulah to finish the season at 10-17.
"It just wasn't our night," Lady Apache head coach Gary Harris said. "We got some good looks early in the game and just couldn't seem to get anything to go down, while they seemed to hit everything they threw up on their end. They were the #1 seed from District 6 and they showed why tonight."
The game was close throughout, with Tallulah taking the first quarter, 13-11 and then led 26-21 at half time. Tallulah then out-scored Glenbrook 33-30 in the second half.
"I thought our girls fought and battled all night long," Harris said. "They never quit playing hard. We got down I think 18 at one point late and just kept clawing our way back into it, making it a tight game near the end. But Tallulah did what good teams do and they stepped to the line and hit their free throws."
Kate Tracy led the Lady Apaches with 17 points (including five three-pointers), Lauren Sims scored nine, and Carsin Spurlock added eight. Keely Kidd scored six points and Hannah Harris had three. Macie Branch, Melody Hanson, Jessica Mangrum, and Karmen Underwood each scored two points
"I'm disappointed in the outcome, but I told the girls at the end of the game I was tremendously proud of how far we had come this season," Harris said. " We reached a lot of goals and benchmarks this season. I'm thankful for the time and effort our two seniors, Kate and Keely gave us and wish them all the best in life in their future endeavors."
