Bowie finishes third at first tournament

Published

on

The Bowie Lady Rabbits had a great first tournament at Burkburnett’s Cool in Boomtown event.
The Lady Rabbits ended up finishing third overall after going 5-1.
Coming into the tournament, Bowie had yet to get tested in an actual game. The Lady Rabbits had easily beaten Archer City and Alvord earlier in the week without dropping a set.
Despite expecting to get tested, that stayed true for the first four games.
In pool play Bowie won all of its matches against tournament host Burkburnett (25-10, 25-19), Petrolia (25-14, 25-9) and Vernon Northside (25-13, 25-20).
This got them into the gold bracket where the Lady Rabbits then beat Bridgeport in straight sets 25-6 and 25-23.
Unfortunately, the unbeaten streak came to an end against perennial state power Boyd that kept Bowie out of the championship game. No scores from coach were provided.
This meant the Lady Rabbits played Vernon for the third place title where they pulled it off. No scores were given from the match.

Published

on

Devin Stewart scored 22 points for Saint Jo and helped the Panthers beat Bellevue on Friday night.

The Saint Jo Panthers were able to bounce back and beat Bellevue on Friday night in Bowie to earn the third seed in district play.
The Panthers won 69-51 against a hot Eagles team coming into the game.
Bellevue had won the last four district games heading into the game, including a dominant win against Saint Jo just the previous week.
The Eagles comeback win against second seed Forestburg earlier in the week clutched at least a playoff spot, with a play-in game against the Panthers for the third seed.
The first quarter was competitive as Bellevue led 15-12 as the Eagles had five different players score at least one point.
The Panthers answered back in the second quarter, scoring 22 points as the team got a big lift from Devin Stewart who scored nine points during that period.
Bellevue kept up, scoring 16 points even as it fell behind a little bit.
Saint Jo led 35-31 at halftime.
The Panthers defense stepped up in the third quarter, limiting the Eagles to only one basket and some free throw attempts as Bellevue scored seven points.
Saint Jo got a big boost from Barrett Johnson, who scored 10 of his team’s 14 points as the Panthers lead extended.
Saint Jo led 49-38 heading into the final period.
While the Eagles scored a bit better in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 points, it was not enough to keep up with the Panthers. Saint Jo went 12-16 from the free throw line in the final period alone, which helped the team score 20 points and pull further ahead.
The Panthers won 69-51.
