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.
Frost has 4 score in double figures
These are good times in Frost.

GC Football: Blooming Grove's Williams expects to win
His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
“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.''
