The Glen Rose Lady Tigers dropped a District 7-3A battle to Gatesville last week, 51-41

The score was tied entering the second half, thanks to a Racia Ratliff basket that made it 19-19 after the Lady Hornets had come from behind to take a 19-17 lead.

A 17-9 third quarter push put Gatesville in control, thanks mostly to a 13-4 run over the final 5:30 of the period.

Glen Rose was led in the loss by Angelica Lusackis with nine points and eleven rebounds, while Ratliff had eight points and eight boards.

Others contributing in the loss were Kaitlin West with eight points and three rebounds, Taylor Rhodes, Caitlin Spurgeon and Jessie Calkins with four points each, and Brielle Nicholson and Teryl Dunn with two each.
