When Medora High School senior Hannah Elkins eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in her career during Saturday’s girls basketball game, she said it was a special feeling.
“It meant the world to me,” she said. “I kind of had that goal set since I was a freshman, but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates. It’s been an honor to even be on this team and participate in basketball.”
Elkins had 996 points going into Saturday’s home game against West Washington.
“I needed four points, and on one offensive play, I took it out of bounds on the side and we ran ‘zipper,’ and I ran underneath and caught the ball in the corner and made a 3,” she said. “The next time down the court, I drove in and got fouled, and my 1,000th point was a free throw.”
All along this season, she said she knew she was close to reaching the milestone.
“And my teammates knew, and they just wanted to help me get 1,000 points,” she said.
