WBC Lady Eagles season comes to an end with loss in semifinals

From Williams Baptist College

Many thought the 2012-13 season for the Lady Eagles basketball team from Williams Baptist College would be a rebuilding year, after losing six seniors from a season before.  Despite having ten new players, however, WBC finished fourth in the American Midwest Conference and finished the year with a record of 17-15.

The season came to a close on Friday evening at Columbia College, when the Lady Eagles fell 68-40 in the AMC Tournament semifinals.  Michaela Thompson and Meagan Goza scored nine points each to lead WBC.  The team shot 23 percent from the floor in the contest, including 3-of-23 from 3-point range.

Cheyenne Childers finished as the Lady Eagles' leading scorer with 12.26 points per game.  She shot 48 percent from the floor on the season.  Childers also averaged 6.58 rebounds per game.  Sharonda Brabson led the AMC and Eagles averaging 1.16 blocks a contest.

The Lady Eagles finished ranked seventh in the NAIA in rebounds with 44.8 per game.  They were second in the AMC in scoring defense, allowing a mere 58 points per contest.

Williams graduates only one senior from this year's squad, boding well for the Lady Eagles are they look to the 2013-14 campaign.
