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.

Rudy Miller scored 12 points and Kenneth Freeman and Daniel Tranthem scored eight points each. Witty Busby (6) and Kyle Chasteen (6) also scored for Wortham.


 Kerens 60, Cayuga 40

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.

Nate Betts dominated with a 28-point night and Brandon Ward followed with 10 points. Jake Moss added nine and Shelton Sayles (5), Dustin Moss (4) and Hunter Green also scored for Kerens.


Blooming Grove 66, Teague 55

The Lions won another big game in the District 23-2A race on Tuesday and are now 5-2 and in second place one game behind Mildred (6-1) and a half of a game behind Marlin (5-1), which was idle on Tuesday. Blooming Grove is 17-5 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.

Hubbard 84, Dawson 46

The Jags stayed in the  hunt in District 18-1A DI with an impressive win on Tuesday. They’re 2-2 in the district race. D’Warren Simmons scored 30 points to lead Hubbard and Braydyn  Gillham (12) and Trey Henderson (10) had big nights for the Jags.


Hubbard 77, Dawson 37

Hubbard, which is 19-2 and ranked No. 4 in the TGCA Class 1A DI state poll, improved to 5-1 in the District 18-1A DI race. Dawson was led by Stephanie Lindsey who scored 15 points, Jalyn Miller (10) and Kaylee Martinez (5) also scored for Dawson.

  • 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.
