Senior basketball player, Kendall Boyer, reached a huge milestone in her high school basketball career. She scored her 1,oooth career varsity point, making her the ninth girl in the school’s history to do so. We talked to some of her teammates and her head coach about her achievement.
Head varsity coach, Sam Rauls, had this to say about Kendall’s milestone, “It’s really exciting. She’s the ninth girl in school history to hit a thousand. It’s really special because she was the first player that I’ve coached to get it.”
“I’m so proud of her,” says senior Kaitlyn McGinnitey. “We’ve been best friends for a long time. She’s been playing varsity for three years and even when we weren’t playing together, we were all so proud 0f her. It’s such a big milestone for her to get during her senior year.”
Senior, Kayli Hartmann, has known Kendall since the two played basketball together from sixth grade and she knew even then that Kendall was going to achieve great things. “Being her teammate and helping and seeing her reach her goal means a lot to me. This is the first of many milestones for her. I am excited to see what the future holds for her.”
“I got the assist!” Senior, Rose Thomas, told us excitedly. “I got the ball and knew that it was time for Kendall to get 1,000. I passed it to her and knew she would be open. I’m so proud of her.”
Kendall had this to say about her achievement, “It’s such an honor. It’s so cool. The atmosphere was insane after I got it. I’m thankful for everyone who showed up and has supported me through the last four years.”
Congratulations Kendall! DHS is so proud of you.
