Glen Rose went into the Bosqueville Tournament last weekend coming off a stretch in which they won two of four contests.
The Lady Tigers continued to play well as they brought home the third place trophy from the tournament after knocking off Bosqueville in the final game.
Glen Rose started the contest by facing off against Godley, but were on the wrong end of the 63-36 score.
“We didn’t play badly,” said Glen Rose Head Coach Sherre Hill. “Even though the score obviously doesn’t reflect it, we did a lot of things well. We didn’t shoot very well, but they’re a tough team and we came out with confidence and we executed much better.”
Kaycee Brown and Kaitlin West led the way with eight points each, while Angelica Lisauckis and Racia Ratliff both scored seven points.
In game two, Glen Rose found themselves matched up against Crawford.
Glen Rose led for the most of the way, but couldn’t hold on and fell 54-51.
Glen Rose led until about halfway through the fourth quarter when a few too many turnovers allowed Crawford to take a lead.
Glen Rose was forced to foul and Crawford pulled out the victory.
Lisauckis posted 14 points, while Ratliff totaled a double-double with 13 points and 15 boards. Brown also scored 10.
In the finale, Glen Rose managed to pull out the victory with a 49-23 win over tournament host Bosqueville.
“It was a good game for us and everyone got to play,” said Hill.
Ratliff tallied her second double-double of the tournament with 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Lisauckis posted 11 and West scored eight.
Glen Rose was scheduled to play Axtell on Tuesday, but the possibility of bad weather forced the teams to cancel the game. The Lady Tigers will return to action on Friday against Tolar.
Following the Tolar game, Glen Rose will take time off for the holidays and will return to tournament action in the Bryan All-Star Classic on Dec. 29-31.
“(The girls) are playing much better” said Hill. “They’re starting to play more as a team, and they’re starting to understand their roles. I’m hoping we’ll come out of the break and be ready for district.”
