GLEN ROSE - With the Brock Lady Eagles currently the top-ranked team at the varsity level in the State of Texas, it should come as no surprise that the talent runs deep into the junior high level. Monday night's home contest against Brock was the toughest test for the Glen Rose Lady Tigers' junior high teams, and while the 7th and 8th grade combined B and 7th grade A teams came up short, the 8th A team stepped up to the challenge.

The 8th grade Lady Tigers held the Lady Eagles to four points in the first half and converted on 6-of-their-12 free throw attempts en route to a 28-16 win to remain undefeated on the season and in district play.

Breanna Baker led all scorers with 10 points, Kennedy Bunt chipped in six, Hailey Ibarra posted four points, while Molly Beauchamp, Camryn Miller and Kora Dodson all scored two points, and Kennedy Overton and Avery Turner scored one point, each.

The 7th grade Lady Tigers dropped their first game of district and of the season after they suffered a 46-17 loss to Brock.

Hannah Cantwell was the leading scorer for Glen Rose with seven points, Presley Young scored six, and Abby Stephenson and Abby Koerner each scored two.

The combined 7th and 8th B team fell 19-6 in the early game, with Alyssa Gore and Jaqlyn Evans scoring two points and Addiston Barber and Julia Sanchez posting one point, each.

Glen Rose Junior High athletics will take a break for the Holidays and return to action the week of Jan. 7 when the Lady Tigers host Rio Vista at 5, 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
