GC Basketball: Late Tuesday roundup — Mildred girls take over first place in 23-2A

Corsicana — Mildred’s Lady Eagles won the game they had to win Tuesday night on the road, beating Riesel 37-30 to take sole possession of first place in the District 23-2A race.

Mildred not only avenged its only loss in district, but can control its own destiny.

The Lady Eagles, who are 7-1, are a full game ahead of Riesel (6-2) with four  games left in the district season and can win the 23-2A title if they run the table.

 Once again, it was Mildred’s stingy defense that set the tone for the game.

Coach Dale Clement and his kids have a goal every night to hold their opponent to 35 points or less and for the fifth time in eight district games, Mildred’s D got the job done, stopping Riesel’s offense all night.

Allison Hierholzer led the way with 16 points and Shelby Adamson followed with 12. Maddie Moore (5), Callie Bland (2) and Maddie Murrell (2) also scored for Mildred, which is 13-9 for the season.

The Bobcats improved to 3-1 in the District 18-1A DI race with their third win in a row and are now 13-7 for the season.

The Lions saw four players reach double figures as Rowdy Barlow (18), Dalton Blake (13), Juanya Pyburn (13) and Daniel Pelzel (11) all had big nights. Tyler Lewis (6), Tyler Ellis (3), Brody Owens (1) and Tyler Morris (1) also scored for Blooming Grove.

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.
