York Catholic's Kate Bauhof scored her 1,000th career point in the Fighting Irish's 63-26 victory at Biglerville.
Bauhof surpassed the milestone with a long 3-pointer just before the horn sounded to end the first quarter.
"She needed nine points, and she wound up with 10," York Catholic coach Kevin Bankos said.
An all-state junior guard, Bauhof helped the Irish run away with a 24-8 lead in the first quarter and coast to victory.
Bauhof is the first Irish player to reach 1,000 points since Morgan Klunk in 2013.
"I'm not surprised by it by any means, she’s a pure scorer," Bankos said. "With her it was a matter of when it was going to happen, not if."
Bauhof is the ninth player in the program's history to reach 1,000 points, with former Division I player Kady Schrann topping the list with 2,162 points.
"It's a distinguished list," Bankos said. "And most of those kids on the list have team titles, whether it's in the league or district or state, that they would talk about pretty quickly."
