Lady Gators lose twice in Terrell Tip-Off Classic

After a great first week that saw Glenwood win three games and streak to a 3-0 mark, the Lady Gators fell on tough times as they lost both games in the fall Terrell Tip-Off Classic held in Dawson, Ga., Nov. 25-26.

All Coach Julie Humphries could say after the tournament was, “It was ugly.”

Glenwood opened with Tiftarea Academy and lost a three-point heartbreaker, 40-37. The Lady Gators opened the game with a three-point lead against Tift Area after the first period but failed to score in the second and it was an up-hill battle from there.

“We lost and played poorly and it was a lack of effort on our side,” Humphries said after the contest. “I felt we played zero defense.”

Besides not scoring a single point in the second quarter, Glenwood was also only 13 of 26 from the foul line in the game.

Mya Brooks had 21 points and Katie Suarez added eight, but no other Glenwood player had more than one basket in the contest.

It was even tougher the next night as the Lady Gators fell, 48-32, to the host Terrell Academy girls.

Again, Brooks was the only Lady Gator in double figures with 15.

Glenwood was hampered as they lost their point guard, Payton Corbett, who fouled out of the contest, and Glenwood was whistled for 14 infractions while Terrell had only six.

Sierra Brogdon, who was an all-state selection last year in Georgia private schools, led all scorers with 18 and also got 13 from teammate Emma Jackson.

“We just could not stop them,” Humphries added.

After the Thanksgiving holiday, the Lady Gators will travel to Dothan to play Northside Methodist for their only varsity game next week. The next varsity game after that will be Edgewood at home on Dec. 9.
