GLEN ROSE – The seventh and eighth grade Lady Tigers continued their dominant start to the season on Monday night with a four-game sweep of visiting Hillsboro. Glen Rose outscored Hillsboro 142-36 during the four games on the evening.

Jenna White more than tripled the point production of the Hillsboro Lady Eagles in the seventh grade B team’s 34-7 win, as her 25 points on 11 made baskets and three free throws paced the lopsided win. Taylor McKenzie added four points, Casey Herrera and Austin Brown each accounted for two points and Gracie Ramirez knocked down one-of-her-two free throws.

The Seventh grade A team won 43-8 and got scoring contributions from 10 different players. Presley Young led the way with eight points on four made baskets, while Abby Stephenson, Clenna Elam, Hannah Cantwell and Brylea Foegelle accounted for six points, each. Lindsay Andress added four points and went two-for-two from the charity stripe, and Emma Lozier (2), Abby Koerner (2), Alexia Mims (2), and Jocelyn Mims (1) rounded out the Lady Tigers scoring.

GRJHS’ eighth grade B team needed points from just four players to take a 22-5 win on Monday in a game in which it held visiting Hillsboro to zero points through three quarters. Citlally Espino knocked down five shots for a game-high 10 points, Jaclyn Evans scored six points, Jordin Voss accounted for four points of her own and Julia Sanchez rounded out the scoring with two points.

The Eighth grade A team capped the night with a 43-16 win that could have been much more lopsided if not for a few missed opportunities at the free throw line. The Lady Tigers were just 11-21 from the charity stripe.

Regardless, Hailey Ibarra paced the scoring effort with her game-high 12 points, and was aided in the scoring department by nine other Lady Tigers, including Breanna Baker with seven points, Camryn Miller’s six, and Kennedy Bunt’s five points. Rounding out the scoring outpour was Kali Matthews (4), Kennedy Overton (3), Avery Turner (2), Molly Beauchamp (2), Alexis Drugan (1), and Taylor Fellers (1).

The Lady Tigers will look to duplicate their production on Monday, Dec. 7 when they hit the road to square off with Keene.
