GC Basketball: Kiwanis Classic Tournament: Day 3 roundup

(Continued)

Corsicana —

Lincoln said she didn't say much at halftime.

"I didn't have to say much to motivate them,'' she said. "We've been to the state tournaments. The motivation is there. I told them that nobody wants you to win. Only the Kerens people want you to win.And I told them you have to be 10 points ahead going into the fourth quarter. They gave me 17. They know what they have to do.''

Baxter said the players just needed to get focused after the tough start, and the technical foul made them realize just how much they needed to focus.

"We had to put that out of our minds,'' she said. "We needed to pick it up and not let the refs get into our heads. And we knew we had to take (Moore) and Rios) out of the game and play defense on them. We knew if we took them out of the game we would take over.''

They did just that.

Third-place game

Hubbard 49, Mildred 35

Hubbard bounced back from its first loss of the season (a 64-34 loss to Kerens) and took care of Mildred (8-8) to take third place in the Kiwanis Tournament and improve to 14-1.

    Jasmine Parks and Nakaila Banks led the Lady Jags with 10 points. Shelby Adamson led Mildred with 11 points and Maddie Moore followed with eight. Mildred struggled at the free throw line, where the Lady Eagles missed 14 of their first 15 and finished the game making just 9-of-28 free throws.

Consolation title

Teague 51, Blooming Grove 23: Too many fouls and too many turnovers haunted Blooming Grove (5-7) in the girls consolation final against Teague (13-5).

    Starters Tre Wiggins and Brittany Nichols both ran into foul trouble early and sat out most of the second and third quarters, and Teague took advantage and turned 9-7 edge  into a  comfortable cushion. Teague forced a dozen turnovers in the third quarter and went on a 15-2 run to take control.

    Blooming Grove was led by Hannah Southard, who hit two 3s and finished with eight points. Teague was led by Ali Watson, who scored 11 and Caitlyn Collins, who followed with 10 points.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
