The Longhorns played a good first quarter, but Bellevue was simply too much en route to a 75-43 District 1A-21 victory at Forestburg on Friday.
“I thought they did pretty well,” said Bellevue coach Colby Broussard of his team. “They got into some foul trouble early, but they buckled down and did a good job.”
Forestburg head coach Steve Sandusky wasn’t happy with the Longhorn defense.
“It was one of our better defensive starts,” Sandusky said. “But, they shot too well and we did not rebound well enough on their misses.”
The closest margin Forestburg managed at the end of a quarter was a six-point deficit after the first.
Bellevue outscored them by eight in the second, 11 in the third and seven in the fourth.
“We have got to improve on shooting and rebounding, period,” Sandusky stressed. “We saw some good things offensively, but are still not shooting well.”
Layne Morris led Bellevue to the win with 24 points.

Nocona got its new press box into place this week at Jack Crane Stadium. The old press box, which was in place for more than 60 years, was taken out in early June and moved to Indian Valley Raceway. The new press box was by the Southern Bleacher Company out of Graham. Athletic Director Black Crutsinger said they looked at a lot of press boxes and decided they liked the one at Lindsay High School and went with that model. Sean Hutson operated the crane from the Hurd Crane Service that put the press box up for Nocona.

Hattie Snow got the fastest time in the flags event and Lany Shupak got the fastest goat time. Riggin Bishop got named the top cowboy in the division.
In the eight-and-under division, Whitley Goins won the top cowgirl and Trell Carpenter won top cowboy. Goins got the fastest times in barrel racing, flags and mystery event. Carpenter got the fastest time in poles and goats.
In the 9-12 age division, Sage Keck won the top cowgirl while Chisum Carpenter won the top cowboy. Keck got the fastest times in four of the five divisions. Only Layna Taylor getting the fastest goat time prevented her from winning in a clean sweep.
