Glenwood boys, girls basketball wins Co-Athletes of the Week

Posted: Updated:
PHENIX CITY, Ala. -

Both the Glenwood Gator boys and girls basketball teams have cruised through the regular season and seem poised for another state championship berth.

For that, they are the WRBL Co-Athletes of the Week.

The girls are 24-1, and, their coach says, have done everything they've needed to this year.

"We have to play Evangel on Friday," said head coach Julie Humphries. "They've worked hard all year, and they know this has been a goal of their's, so we're just looking forward to getting ready to play."

It's tough to believe for a team that only lost once this year, but the Gators believe they are just now peaking.

"Here lately we've been playing really good as a team," said guard Elizabeth Perdue. "We've been playing together and we're really excited about going into the state tournament with that positive attitude."

As for the boys, the defending state champs have picked up right where they left off, and have a familiar face on the other bench in Friday's semifinal.

"We made it to the Final Four, playing against our nemesis, our arch-rival, Lee-Scott," said head coach Dusty Perdue. "Coach [Chad] Prewett up there does a great job. We're going to play them in the Final Four, hope for a good turnout and just hope for a chance to play for another state championship."

Expectations are high for the Gators.

"We've had a great season," said point guard Lawson Humphries. "We've only suffered two losses, and none of them were in the state of Alabama. We have high expectations these next two games, and we expect a state championship."

The girls face Evangel at 2:00 p.m. at Huntingdon College in Montgomery, while the boys face off with Lee-Scott at 3:30 p.m.
