MSM Honors Senior Basketball Belles at Season’s End

On Friday, Feb. 22, the Basketball Belles honored their senior members before the team’s final game of the season. Though the Belles ended up losing to the Central Tigers, the effort the girls displayed during the game – and all season long – is worth celebrating.


“Basketball is an extremely long season, and these girls did a great job of working hard for the duration of the season,” head coach Lauren Lawrence said. “Each year we are trying to improve on the previous one in order to build up our basketball program, and these girls did just that. Our seniors played a huge role in our progress through their leadership and dedication.”


The Belles finished seventh in the 6A Central conference after nearly four months of play. A highlight of the season was a hard-fought conference win against Cabot in early February. “Our defense did a great job of containing [Cabot’s] better players and not giving up a lot of offensive rebounds,” Coach Lawrence said.


Congratulations to Coaches Lawrence, Henry and Brumley, and the Basketball Belles!
