SWEET SPRINGS -- The Sweet Springs boys' and girls' basketball teams dropped both ends of a non-conference home doubleheader against state-ranked Glasgow squads Thursday.

The No. 4 Yellowjackets jumped in front by an 11-4 margin in the first quarter of the boys' contest, which they won, 43-33. The Greyhounds hung close, but Glasgow closed out by hitting nine of its 10 free throws during the final period.

Senior Ethan Thompson led the 'Jackets (12-2) with 17 points.

Sweet Springs (9-6) got a game-high 20 points from junior Jacob Schowengerdt.

Glasgow also got off to a quick start in the girls' game, taking a 10-4 lead during the opening frame, but the Lady 'Hounds kept falling behind -- trailing by 25 points heading into the fourth quarter, when they scored 20 points for a belatedly rally.

Junior Erin Reynolds and sophomore Abby Thompson combined for 21 points to pace the Lady 'Jackets (10-3).

Sweet Springs got 13 points from junior Christina Higgins and 11 from sophomore Nicole Bright, but was plagued by 26 turnovers.

The 'Hounds will be at home today for an I-70 Conference showdown with Lone Jack.
