BENTON -- When the Benton girls basketball team arrived in Lake Charles for its Class 4A state semifinal game against St. Thomas More, Lulu Perry felt different.

"I felt like a celebrity," the 5-foot-6 point guard recalled. "We've never been on that really big of a stage. We were in a top spot -- Top 4. There was no time to be nervous. It felt good."

That's how Perry described a lot of her season this year. Perry, who carried her team to the semifinals for the first time since 1997, averaged 27.7 points per game and saw that average grow to 29.1 by the end of the year.

She graduated with 3,563 career points, shattering a 10-year-old Caddo-Bossier scoring record.

All of it helped her to be selected the Louisiana Sports Writers Association's Farm Bureau/Miss Basketball award.
