GC Hoops: Lady Polar Bears coast over Lady Lions, 50-27

Frost has 4 score in double figures

Corsicana — These are good times in Frost.

The Polar Bears’ football team gets ready for a regional final on Friday night, and the girls basketball team can’t lose.

The Lady Polar Bears jumped on Navarro County neighbor Blooming Grove on Tuesday night, coasting to a 50-27 victory over the Lady Lions.

Frost (9-0), ranked No. 12 in the latest TABC Class 1A DII girls basketball rankings (No. 11 in the coaches poll), heads into its own tournament starting Thursday as the only undefeated girls team in the Golden Circle.

Things are so good in Frost that on Friday the Polar Bears’ annual basketball tournament schedule has been bumped up to finish around 3:30 p.m. so the people running the tournament can get to Van for the football team’s playoff game (Frost doesn’t have a boys team in the tourney because of football).

The Lady Polar Bears broke away from Blooming Grove on Tuesday night with a 15-4 advantage in the third quarter. Kadee Bowling scored six of her 13 points in the quarter.

Frost finished off the game making seven free throws in the fourth quarter. But the Lady Polar Bears also missed seven attempts in the game, so all wasn’t perfect for Frost coach Clark Moore.

“It was OK,” Moore said. “We played a little bit better in the second half. We have some girls that are still getting used to playing with each other.”

Blooming Grove (5-6) stuck close to Frost in the first half, trailing just 22-16. The Lady Lions, playing under first-year coach JJ Guidry, were able to work the ball inside.

Savannah Bearden finished the game with seven points. Hannah Southard had five points.

“Our girls played hard,” Guidry said. “We have great senior leadership but we’re also young. They’re getting better every game.”

Bowling led a balanced scoring attack for Frost. Diana Rios and Jae Moore had 10 points each. Dakota Lassetter had eight points and Jasmyn Steels had seven.

  • CHS SotfballSpence.jpg GC Softball: Playoff Time

    There  were some bumps on the road and slides in the standings and a few bruises along the way, but five Golden Circle teams have reached the softball playoffs that begin with first round games on Thursday.
    For Corsicana it was a wakeup call during the second half of district play that gave the Tigers the push they needed, and for Mildred it was the culmination of yet another splendid season as the Lady Eagles made the playoffs for the fifth straight season. Blooming Grove is back again, a regular in post season play with a chance to make a run, and Hubbard begins its quest to get to the state tournament and Austin with a one-game playoff on Thursday against Itasca in Italy.

  • NVSBAhearn.jpg Navarro Softball: Bulldogs split with Kilgore, win final home game

    Kristen Ahearn was mad, steaming.
    Even her peanut butter and jelly sandwich that she ate between the doubleheader games didn't taste good. Nothing fit. Nothing was in sync. Nothing felt right or even tasted right.
    Then Ahearn found the cure.
    Simple enough: Just go out and blast a three-run homer.
    That's the short version of what happened Tuesday at Navarro College, where Ahearn's three-run bomb ignited the Bulldogs in the second game against Kilgore and Navarro went on to win 8-5 to close out its regular season with a bang and a smile from Ahearn.

    The wait is over.
    And it came just in time for Brett Anderson, who left it all on the mound Tuesday night at Kerens, where he pitched a masterpiece to lead the Bobcats over Cayuga, 5-1, and help the program win its first baseball district title since 1981.
    “I've got no gas left. I'm out,'' said Anderson, a senior lefty who stopped Cayuga cold, holding the three-time defending district champs to just three singles while striking out 14.
