Stephenville placed second in the Glen Rose 9th grade basketball tournament last weekend with a 2-1 mark.

The Jackets edged Waco 54-49 in the quarterfinals, thanks in large part to the scoring efforts of Rhyker Thompson (11) and Preston Brown (10).

Kennedale couldn’t keep up with Stephenville in the semifinals as Thompson netted 11 points and Brandon Allen and Brice Gunter each added 10 in a 55-37 win.

Glen Rose finally ended Stephenville’s luck in the championship game, despite Allen leading the Jackets in scoring
