Three Local Basketball Players Reach Magical 1,000-Point Plateau

High school basketball got back into full swing Friday night, and what a night. First, Emily Weber reached the magical 1,000 career points as unbeaten Shenendehowa beat Averill Park, 53-42, in a Suburban Council encounter.


Mary Kate Cusack led the 11-0 Plainsmen with 20 points while Weber added 16.

Also, Jax Miller tallied 25 points to hit the 1,000th point mark as Argyle had an easy time with Salem, 85-15, in an Adirondack League game.

Molly Lauver put together 19 points as Cambridge turned away Hoosick Falls, 50-35, in Wasaren League play and that put Lauver over 1,000 career points.

Well, Joe Estramonte of Greenwich sank nine three-pointers en route to a sparkling 31-point performance, and in the process joined the 1,000th-point career list. Unfortunately, Greenwich lost to Schuylerville, 54-49, in a Wasaren contest.

Collin Stewart of Mekeel Christian Academy lit up the scoreboard with a school record 45 points as his team defeated Sharon Springs, 88-72, in a Western Athletic Conference game.
