At Belton, Emily Hugo pumped in 19 points on the strength of five 3-point baskets and the Lady Tigers downed the Pantherettes in the season finale for both teams.
Belton, which never trailed, finished 10-24 overall and was at the bottom of District 8-5A at 2-12. Midway closed at 10-18, 4-10.
It also didn’t hurt that the Lady Tigers took 57 shots, expanding their opportunities. Plus, Hugo’s 3-point shooting barrage helped Belton get out of the gate early in both halves.
“It makes us feel like we’re on the right track,” Belton second-year coach Brenda Gomez said. “Hopefully the kids can see that our type of philosophy with our type of kids can win.”
