YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – It was a week to remember for several local players who joined the 1,000 point club.
Boardman senior Derrick Anderson did it last Tuesday when he pumped in a staggering 38 points in the Spartan’s win over Ursuline.
Poland’s Jackie Grisdale reached the milestone as a junior. Grisdale finished with 19 points against Struthers and became the seventh female player in school history to reach 1,000 points.
“It means the world to me,” Grisdale said. “This is a milestone for me but it shows how much work everyone around me has put in, too.”
South Range senior Chris Brooks joined the club Wednesday. His 19-point effort against Niles was enough to become just the second boys player to eclipse 1,000 points. He also became the school’s all-time leader in rebounds.
“It was a little surreal,” Brooks said. “I’ve always dreamed about scoring 1,000. It’s been my goal since I can remember. It was just fun putting that bucket in and everyone happy for me, and it was a real special moment.”
Our Player of the Game Friday night was Springfield’s Drew Clark. The Tigers senior stuffed the stat book against LaBrae with 24 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks, four assists and three steals in our WKBN Game of the Week.
