Four Bellville Brahmanette basketball athletes earned end-of-season honors within District 26-4A.
Senior Bryanna Richardson cracked the all-district second team and three of her teammates earned honorable mentions: Taytum Poppe, Kearstin Carter and Neelie Schiel.
On top of that, four Brahmanettes garnered academic all-state distinction from the Texas Girls’ Coaches Association: Emma Adams, Kaylin Krebs, Carter and Richardson.
Richardson was one of five athletes who were playing their final basketball season for the red and white and closed her career by leading her team in steals and registering team third-best totals in several categories.
Her 85 steals on the season, and average of 2.9 steals per game, were tops among the Bellville stat book. Richardson’s average points per game (5.4) and rebounds per game (4.6) were both third, as were her total points scored (156), three-pointers made (8), rebounds (132) and assists (20).
Carter notched all-district honorable mentions in her senior season while Poppe and Schiel have two years remaining to lead the Brahmanette basketball squad.
Carter’s points per game (5.8) was second on the team but her rebounds per game (5.0) and assists per game (1.0) were first. Also tops among Bellville basketballers were her total rebounds (146) and assists (30) while her 169 total points and 14 three-pointers made were second.
Poppe led a handful of categories, including points per game (10.5), blocks per game (1.0), total points (263), total three-pointers made (52) and total blocks (25). She was second on the team in assists per game (0.9), steals per game (2.7), total assists (23) and total steals (67).
Schiel wasn’t far behind Poppe in many lists, registering a team second-best in rebounds per game (4.9), total rebounds (143) and blocks (23). She was third-best in steals per game (2.2) and total steals (63) while finishing fifth on the team in points per game (5.1) and total points (149).
