Glenbrook tops Franklin, 9-3

The Glenbrook Apaches took a big step in winning another district championship Monday, as they defeated Franklin, 9-3.

The Apaches had to battle not only the Franklin players, but the rain to improve their record to 15-1 overall and 5-1 in district.

"We had to pull the tarp out two or three times because of the rain," Glenbrook coach Jonathan Hardy said. "We had a delay of an hour and half to two hours before we were able to get the game going."

Hardy was impressed by the way his team kept their focus during the delays.

"I was proud of the way the guys were able to keep their mindset and keep their focus," he said. "They were able to get the job done despite all the distractions from the weather, and this was a big district win for us."

Spencer White started on the mound for the Apaches and went all seven innings to get the win. White struck out two batters and allowed no earned runs, while walking zero.

"That was really key for us, the no walks," Hardy said. "Going seven innings with no walks was really big. You won't lose many ball games if you go out and do that. The three runs Franklin scored were unearned runs, during the innings where our defense made some miscues."

Austin Palmier had a base hit and drove in three runs to lead the offense. Logan Clark had a single and two RBI, and Conner Clark had a RBI-single. White also singled.

"I was proud of the way the kids battled today," Hardy said. "They battled the odds and were able to come out and win a big ball game."

The Apaches are scheduled to play Central School in a jv/varsity doubleheader today, and then will travel to Pineville for a district game against Cenla Christian Academy on Thursday. The Apaches will close out their week with a district game at Riverdale on Saturday.
