Brock dominates early, late to beat Lady Panthers


BROCK — The Paradise Lady Panthers came into the District 9-2A contest on Tuesday hoping to extend its 1-0 district record. But their intentions were put in jeopardy very quickly as Brock’s Lady Eagles got off to a productive start. Brock owned an 11-point advantage at the end of the opening quarter and expanded on  the lead, winning the game at Brock High School, 48-28.

“We started well and built a nice cushion in the first half,” said Brock head coach Chance Westmoreland. “Paradise has a good team. They put the full court press on us, but we really did a pretty good job of bringing the ball down and did not have that many turnovers.

“[Bailey] Ivey did a real good job of handling the ball tonight. It was a good win for us”

Paradise did muster more offense in the second frame and managed to hold the Brock margin to 13 points entering the fourth. Junior Lexie Ducat got very active at the low post down the stretch, adding five more points to her 19-point night, The Brock defense also stiffened in the fourth and the result was a 10-3 putaway by the Lady Eagles, who improve to 2-0 in district play.

“Lexie has worked hard in the offseason,” Westmoreland said. “She has had more than 80 games as a freshman and sophomore and has really matured as a player.”

The Brock offense played through some tough possessions in the third quarter. Threes from Ivey and Rachel Harrell helped salvage the period. Ivey followed Ducat, scoring 13 points, while Harrell contributed seven to the effort.

Brock, holding the No. 1 ranking in the Texas Girls Coaches Association poll, is a relatively young squad, with a bevy of juniors and sophomores, grounded by its lone, yet very experienced senior, Taylor Fulmer, who was a consistent defensive menace to Paradise.

“We’re young, but the girls stuck to the game plan tonight and handled the press,” said Westmoreland.

The Lady Eagles return to district action on Friday, traveling to play Ponder at 7 p.m.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
