  • The Glasgow boys and girls basketball teams had little trouble advancing to the championship in the Marceline Hoops Tournament last night.
    With both teams seeded No. 1 in the tournament, the Lady Yellowjackets beat Macon County by a score of 57-29 while the Glasgow boys prevailed over the same team 55-16.
    The Lady Yellowjackets, 9-1 on the season, outscored Macon County in each of the four quarters of play and led 29-12 at the half and 38-18 after three quarters of play. Meanwhile, in the final period, Glasgow held a 19-11 advantage to win the game by 28.
    Glasgow coach Molly Monnig said Macon County was a very physical team.  
    “Erin Reynolds had a very good game offensively,” Monnig said.  “She was able to create shots for her teammates off of the dribble.  We were able to pick up some easy baskets in the full court.”
    Erin Reynolds led a balanced scoring attack for Glasgow with 18 points while Nikki Fuemmeler added a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Abby Thompson chipped in eight, Peyton Davis six, Trisha McMillan and Anne Reynolds each with four and Carley Brucks with two.

    Macon County was led by Bailey Ratliff with 10 points.
    As for the Glasgow boys, who also improved to 9-1 on the season, they led Macon County 32-6 at the half and then outscored the Bulldogs 23-10 in the second half for the victory.
    Glasgow coach Mick Cropp said the boys played well defensively. “We got a lot of good things out of our offense,” Cropp said. “We just didn’t shoot a very good percentage.”
    Reid Littrell had the game-high for Glasgow with 13 points along with 10 rebounds.
    Joel Monnig finished the game with eight points, 11 rebounds and three steals while Jimmie Wilson added eight points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal, Blake Hackman with seven points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals, Austin Stockhorst and Josh Sanders each with three points and Alex Mathews and Austin Speiser with two points each.
