Bellbrook’s Erin Dorn is one of nine Dayton-area girls to reach 1,000 career points this season.

Urbana senior Trischa Lacy’s 50 points against Indian Lake puts her in rare company. The fact that she
recently surpassed 1,000 career points should, too. Not this season…However unlikely, nine Dayton-area girls have surpassed 1,000 points this season. One went over 2,000.

Trischa Lacy grew up mesmerized by Bill “Skeet” Moss’ stories about
past Urbana High School great girls basketball players. Now, she’s a
part of his repertoire.

Her team trailing Indian Lake by 15 points, Lacy got a “little lecture” from Moss at halftime of the Hillclimbers’ Jan. 12 game.

Said Lacy: “Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.”

What followed was.

Urbana
rallied for a 77-71 win thanks in part to Lacy’s 50 points. She had 33
in the second half. It’s the area’s top individual scoring performance
this season. Only Valley View senior Zack Denny (51 points) has more.

“I’m a competitor,” Lacy said. “I hate to lose. In the second half … my girls got after it.”

Several others have followed that scoring mantra.

While
Lacy’s 50-point game puts her in rare company, the fact that she
recently surpassed 1,000 career points should, too. Not this season.

However unlikely, nine area girls have surpassed 1,000 points this season. Tecumseh’s Bianca Quisenberry went over 2,000 points.

“In
my 25 years, I can’t remember a year where this many players reached
the 1,000-point milestone in one season,” said Jim Dabbelt, director of
The Dabbelt Report (a regional girls basketball website). “It’s common
to have one or two kids per season reach that mark, but no less than
nine this year is phenomenal.

“Scoring over 2,000 points like Quisenberry is beyond impressive.”

It’s not over…
