Recently: The center totaled 56 points in three wins, going over 1,000 for her career, as Shiloh (25-4) won three league games to clinch the LOVC regular season championship.

In her own words: "It was crazy (hitting 1,000 points). When we went out, I needed five. Then I missed two free throws and was like, 'This will take the whole game.' When I got it, everyone was cheering and two guys ripped their shirts off and had 1,000 written across them."
