On Jan. 11, senior Haley Nichols scored her 1000th point in her high school basketball career, a feat she realized she wanted to hit going into junior year. She has played for the team since her freshman year.
“My teammates are very supportive and have all said very positive things about [the point],” said Nichols.
The point was not the easiest for Nichols to get. With a possibly broken wrist, she had to be careful during the game, which was against Danville.
“It was hard with my wrist, but our trainers take care of me before every game,” said Nichols.
Nichols said the game was something she would never forget.
“The environment was great,” said Nichols.
The point was scored when a fellow teammate gave her a pass for a layup. As a celebration, Nichols kept the game’s ball.
“My teammates and I are getting together this weekend to [celebrate],” said Nichols.
Nichols plans to continue playing after high school, having already signed her national letter of intent to play basketball at the University of Tennessee Martin.
