The 9th grade Lady Tigers rolled to three wins against freshman opponents last week, with their only loss coming by two points against Alvarado’s JV.
Glen Rose, 3-1 on the young season, tipped off 2008-09 with a 56-14 thrashing of Hubbard that was highlighted by a first half shutout.
The Lady Tigers held HHS without a single point in the opening two quarers, building a 26-0 halftime lead. They finished off the rout by outscoring Hubbard 30-14 after the break.
Taylor Rhodes rolled to 14 points in the opener, while Morgan Bruce was also in double figures with 11.
Others scoring in the win were Macy Reynolds with 8, Hannah Dias, 4, Savannah Hulsey, 3, and Mellissa Cook and Jaylen Dillard each with two.
Glen Rose enjoyed winning its opener so much the Lady Tigers decided to give an encore performance in the opening round of the Venus JV Tournament, where they plastered Rosser, 37-18.
Again, the fourth quarter was nothing more than a formality after GRHS posted a 10-0 shutout in the third to stretch its four-point halftime lead to 14 at 25-11.
Hulsey paced the Lady Tigers with 12, while Teryl Dunn and Bruce both tacked on eight. Rhodes added three, while Cook, Reynolds, and Dillard scored each.
Glen Rose was forced to go without Rhodes in the second round and third-place games in Venus, and her absence was felt in a 22-20 loss to Alvarado’s JV.
The Lady Indians dominated the second quarter, 12-1, for a 16-4 halftime advantage before Glen Rose got rolling.
The mighty Lady Tiger defense shut an opponent out for a quarter for the fourth time this season in the third period, while scoring 11 points to pull within one, 16-15, entering the fourth. Alvarado managed just enough offense to hold on, however, thanks to a 6-5 fourth period edge.
Dunn scored seven in the loss, Bruce tallied five and Dillard, Hulsey, Reynolds and Cook all had two.
The Lady Tigers struggled in the first half but returned to form after the break in a rematch with Hubbard.
Glen Rose used runs of 11-1 in the third period and 12-4 in the fourth to turn an 18-17 halftime edge into a 41-22 yawner.
Dunn scored 10 to again lead the scoring effort. Bruce had seven for the Lady Tigers, Hulsey and Dillard each addded six, Cook posted four and Brittan Sanderson, Reynolds, Jasmin Rodriguez and Dias each tacked on two.
