Last night was a record-breaking night, as the Girls’ basketball team defeated Goshen by a score of 64-54 on the road to improve to 8-12 on the season. Addie Brown led all scorers with 38 points, including 7 three-pointers while converting 11 of 11 from the free-throw line, with Kyra Koontz also contributing 12 points. Addie’s total of 38 points breaks the Talawanda girls’ basketball record for points scored in a single game; the PREVIOUS record was 35 points set in the 1971 and 1972 season by Margie Franklin. In addition, Addie’s 7 three-pointers ties the school record for most three-pointers made in a single game. THAT record was formerly set by Lara Pavloff in the 1996 and 1997 season. Addie was also able to surpass the career free-throw record of 301 to now 319 last Wednesday, formerly set by Lee Hart from 1982 and 1986. So, SO far Addie has been able to break the record for free throws in a game, free throws in a season, free throws in a career, and points scored in a game. The girls’ team would like to invite the student body, faculty, and staff to Senior Night on Wednesday at 7:30 pm, for recognition of seniors Addie Brown and Mikaela Bretz.

One home game for tonight: it’s the BOYS Basketball senior night against Ross. Freshman tip at 4:30, JV at 6, and Varsity at 7:30.
