Bowie girls
The Bowie Lady Rabbits came home from their second tournament at Breckenridge last week with a second place finish in the silver bracket.
The Lady Rabbits went 1-4 overall during the tournament while playing some real tough competition in every game.
Bowie started off the tournament by playing the second-ranked team in the state in 1A Gorman. The Lady Rabbits were able to stick around, but could not keep up offensively as they lost 48-37. It would be the closest game during pool play.
Later the first day Bowie was paired against 5A Rider. Despite playing the much bigger school that had a height advantage, the Lady Rabbits competed well, but again the offense could not keep up. The Lady Raiders won 53-38 to end Bowie’s first day.
The Lady Rabbits final game of pool play was also their hardest of the tournament. Bowie was matched up against the top ranked team in the state in 3A Jim Ned.
It did not go well as the Lady Indians won in every facet with the final score being 70-17.
The 0-3 results in pool play meant the Lady Rabbits would play in the silver bracket on the final day of the tournament.
Finally playing a team that wasn’t highly ranked or from a much bigger school in San Angelo Grape Creek, Bowie dominated. The Lady Rabbits held the Lady Eagles to under 10 points most quarters as they won 44-24.
The win put Bowie into the silver bracket championship game where it faced a familiar team. Despite being the second ranked team in the state in 1A, Gorman found itself struggling against the tough competition and was in the silver bracket as well.
The Lady Rabbits kept up with the Lady Panthers, but offensively just could not score enough to make it close. Gorman won 38-25 to win the championship game while Bowie finished second and got some hardware.
Ziba Robbins was named to the all-tournament team. Coach Matthew Miller saw some improvement as the tournament went along.

Bowie boys
The Bowie Jackrabbits played in their first tournament last weekend at S&S Consolidated and posted great results.
The Jackrabbits went 4-1 overall, with three of the wins being one by double-digits in a dominant showing.
Bowie first jumped on Tom Bean and dominated with its defense, holding the Tom Cats to less than double-digit points total until the final quarter. The Jackrabbits won 43-13.
Bowie then played its closest game of the tournament against Bridgeport. After a close first half, the Jackrabbits came out in the third quarter to hold the Bulls to only four points to gain control. Bowie then held on to win 43-37.
The Jackrabbits then played Bonham and again the defense led the way. Bowie held the Warriors to only 13 points in the first three quarters which allowed it to dominate. The Jackrabbits won 46-29.
Bowie then played the tournament host S&S for a chance to play in the championship game. It was the Jackrabbits highest scoring game of the tournament as the team’s combined for more than 120 points. It wasn’t close though as Bowie won by highest margin 82-47.
The win meant the Jackrabbits would have a rematch against Bonham. Unfortunately, it did not go the same way as the first game.
The Warriors offense found rhythm early and flourished especially in the second and third quarters where they scored 17 points in each one. Bowie’s was playing from behind and could not keep up as Bonham won the game 56-39 which was same margin the Jackrabbits had won in the first game.
