Fillmore Central's girls' basketball season abruptly ended on Saturday, March 5, 2011, with a 79-59 loss to a very solid Spring Grove team. The loss ended the high school basketball career of local star, senior Connor Nagle. Connor didn't go down without a fight, posting another career day with 32 points. Connor is proud of her teammates and is "upset, I didn't expect us to end that way. We will have to keep moving forward." She ends her time with the Lady Falcons with 1700 points scored, which is a Fillmore Central School record. She also owns the record for most points scored in a game with 36. Both records are school records for boys and girls, and both are likely to stand for a long while.

Next on Connor's sports resume is her last season with the girls' fast pitch softball team. Practices begin on Monday, March 14. The games start in April.

When the school year ends, Connor will be moving on to the next level of competition. Winona State has asked her to play for them next year. "I am excited to play at a different level. The competition is better." She will join a WSU team coming off a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) championship. So expectations will be extremely high for Connor, who has not played for a championship team thus far. She will have an opportunity over the next four years to get a team to a championship, and there is no doubt she will be a star on that team, too.
