In all-district voting for the 7-4A boys basketball, two Glen Rose players earned recognition with superlatives, and three others are first-team all-district performers.
Caden Schinagel, a 6-5 junior post who on two separate occasions earlier in the 2019-2020 season set the all-time school record for blocked shots in a game, is Co-Defensive Most Valuable Player along with a player from district champion Brownwood.
Lorenzo Greghi, a 5-11 guard for the Tigers, is Co-Newcomer of the Year along with a player from Godley. Greghi is a junior foreign exchange student.
And the Tigers who are first-team all-district are Kasen Keese, Matthew Hammonds and Austin Worthen.
Worthen, a 5-10 guard, also put his name in the GRHS record books when he scored a school-record 40 points in an 83-34 district win over Mineral Wells.
Kasen Keese is a 6-2 senior. Hammonds and Worthen are both 5-10 juniors for coach Owen Clifton’s Tigers.
Second-team all-district honors were earned by Kanyon Keese and Kolton Mooney, both 5-10 juniors.
No honorable mention players were named for Glen Rose.
The Tigers’ season ended with a 66-53 loss to Krum on Feb. 24, in the bi-district round of the playoffs. Glen Rose had qualified for the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the District 7-4A race behind Brownwood. The Tigers ended with an 18-19 season record.
A year ago, following the 2018-2019 season, Kanyon Keese was first-team all-district, while Mooney and Worthen were on the second team and Kasen Keese got honorable mention.
All members of the 2019-2020 varsity boys roster were recognized with the achievement of earning academic all-district.
