Syd Reaches 1,000 – Video

Prior to last night’s game (1/22/2014) against Chillicothe, the school recognized Sydney for scoring 1,000 points in her high school career. They presented her with the game ball and gave us a copy of the game. She reached this milestone fairly early in the game so I was able to upload about a four-minute video.

She needed 5 points going into the game to reach 1,000. She got the first two points on a jump shot. The next two came at the free throw line (not see on the video) and the basket that put her over the top was on a driving lay up.

They did stop the game to acknowledge her accomplishment. It was pretty obvious she wasn’t sure what to do, but it was a nice gesture.

She wears #31 for Massie (in blue on the video).

Syd Reaches 1,000

Syd 1000After missing most of her junior season due to an ACL injury, we weren’t sure where Sydney was on her quest to score 1,000 points in her high school career. About a week ago her coach informed us she was 36 points away from hitting the mark. She got her 1,000 point in a shoot out on Sunday.

The picture shown here is from the Wilmington News-Journal. You can read the article on the game and mention of her passing 1,000 on the local sports page of the News-Journal website.

Massie won the game to remain undefeated this season. Syd ended the game with 23 points.
