1,000 is more than a number


Although they have different styles of play on the court, they are very similar basketball background where older siblings have not only achieved, but excelled.

Ally’s older sister Katie is all over Lady Hatchet records in both scoring and rebounding, currently still third on that all-time list. For Ally to catch her, she will need about 12 points a game through the first round of sectional. Ally’s brother Ethan also excelled, not only as a member of the 2010 state champion team, but also as a Trester Award winner. Ally is also a tremendous soccer player and any accolades bestowed upon her in basketball, hold true for soccer. She is quite a young lady.

Jenna is also a multi-sport star, having led Barr-Reeve to a state championship in volleyball this fall, also winning the mental attitude award, and is one of the areas best softball players. And she, like Ally, has also had successful siblings and relatives as role models. Jenna’s brother Hunter and Ethan both played on successful teams at Barr-Reeve, with Ethan being a 1,000-point scorer himself and a college player.

Jenna’s family is well-represented all throughout Viking basketball land this season. Her first cousin Hannah Bullock is a big part of the No. 3 Lady Vikings success, as well as first cousins Micah Bullock and Logan James who start for the No. 1 boys team.

They are both special young ladies and I’m glad I got a chance to see them play on so many levels. One gets to se them as athletes, students and more importantly - neighbors.

The 1,000 points is nice for the records, but what is a lot nicer is being able to look back eight or 10 years and knowing this day was coming. Congratulations.
