District play was slated to start Friday night for the Glen Rose Lady Tigers.

Instead, the Lady Tigers already have a win after Hillsboro made the decision to forfeit its varsity girls basketball schedule.

"Basically, Hillsboro made the announcement and they held a meeting of district officials Tuesday," said Glen Rose head coach Sheree Hill. "I wasn't at the meeting, but I couldn't imagine they would force Hillsboro to play."

According to sources, Hillsboro will still play their JV and Freshman schedules and the opposing teams have the option of playing there varsity squad against Hillsboro's JV.

"We're going to play our JV against them," said Hill. "I may move some kids down from varsity to play with them though."

Glen Rose was scheduled to host Hillsboro Friday, instead the varsity will be off and the freshman and JV will play at 5 and 6:30 p.m.

"I had another game set up (for our varsity, but it fell through," said Hill. "It's not a big deal though. We're 1-0 in district."

Glen Rose will open 8-3A action in Alvarado Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
