Basketball season came to an end for the ‘Belles after they lost to Central Okla. 76-52 in the first round of the Lone Star Conference Tournament in Bartlesville, Okla on Wednesday, March 2.

"We're disappointed in the way we played today," Head Coach Sally Brooks said. "Other than that, there is nothing disappointing about this year."

In her last game in an Angelo State uniform, senior guard Camille Perkins led the ‘Belles with 18 points. Junior center Paige Weishuhn added 14 points and nine boards.

"I never felt like we really buckled down on defense… to get back in to the game," Brooks said. "We scored some points towards the end, but I never felt like we took control defensively."

The ‘Belles dressed seven players against the Lady Bronchos, just like they have throughout most of the season.

"We played great the last two weeks of the season and I couldn't be any more proud of them," Brooks said. "I've been coaching a long time but I don't know if I've ever been more proud of seven players on the same team than I am with these seven."

Perkins said she has no regrets and is glad she made it back to the LSC Tournament in her senior season.

"We made it a goal this summer and my teammates and I worked extremely hard," Perkins said. "I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls to end my senior year with… I know they're going to continue to carry on the ‘Belle legacy and I wish them all the best."

Perkins is the only graduating senior. The six other ‘Belles will return next season with the new recruits.

"We had a great early signing period… so we just need to keep working hard," Brooks said.
