Eighth grader Tori Glazier got the call to play varsity for the Wildcats over the weekend and responded in a big way, leading the team in scoring in both Friday and Saturday’s games.

 

The Custer High School girls basketball team won its first game of the season last Saturday morning in Rapid City, defeating Lower Brule 45-32 in the team’s final game of the four-day Lakota Nation Invitational basketball tournament.
“Iâ��think we improved each game,”â��head coach Stephanie Ornelas said of the tournament.â��“We do need more consistency. It’s a roller coaster, but Iâ��was impressed with the girls. They never gave up.”
The Lower Brule game was played at St. Thomas More High School, and the Wildcats were led in scoring by eighth grader Tori Glazier, who was brought up to the varsity level over the weekend. Glazier had 19 points in the game.
Ornelas said Glazier, along with freshman Morgan Parys gave the lineup a boost with their play.
“We gelled better together with some different players in,” she said. “We had a little more chemistry going on.”
Glazier was also the team’s leading scorer in Friday’s game against Flandreau, in which the team lost 47-43. Glazier, who had 17 points, pulled the Wildcats within a point late in the game with a three-pointer, but the Wildcats were unable to take the lead.
