Pisgah’s Webb joins the 1,000-Point ClubSenior reaches milestone with her sixth point in first quarter against Franklin
MILLS RIVER — Pisgah senior Maddie Webb picked the perfect time, against the perfect opponent, to reach her greatest personal milestone in her brilliant four-year varsity basketball career.
In Tuesday’s WNC Athletic Conference Girls Basketball Tournament semifinal game against arch-rival Franklin at West Henderson High School, Webb reached 1,000 total career points with her sixth point, an uncontested layup, in the first quarter.
The semifinal game was stopped to recognize her milestone and award the senior the game ball.
Webb, who has committed to play basketball at Division II Mars Hill University, went on to score 21 points and pulled down 11 boards to help the Black Bears to a 60-44 victory over the Panthers, which earned the Black Bears a berth into Thursday’s conference tournament girls championship game.
At press time, no results were available.
In reaching the rare milestone, Webb joins two former teammates, Sheridan Pressley and Brooklyn Allen, in the elite 1,000-Point Club.
This season, Webb is averaging 21 points and 11 rebounds a game for Pisgah and has scored 1,015 points in
