With another week to go in the girls high school basketball regular season and two remaining in the boys season, several players are beginning to reach career milestones.
Melbourne senior Rebecca Campbell will be recognized tonight in a home game against Seminole at 7 p.m. She scored 1,016 career points through Tuesday’s game at Sebastian River. Campbell has started four seasons for the Bulldogs. She also has nearly 750 rebounds.
Holy Trinity star Jace Hogan surpassed 1,000 career points Thursday night against rival Melbourne Central Catholic. He scored 27 points Thursday, and is now at 1,022. Hogan played at Palm Bay as a ninth and 10th-grader.
At West Shore, Lydia Kline may be ahead of schedule. The junior point guard is at 952 points with three regular season games remaining. The Wildcats will play non-district opponents Melbourne, MCC and Harmony.
Covenant Christian senior Emma Grimes is having her best scoring season, already at 403 points. Her career total is 1,355, and her average for this season is 22.4 points per game.
Correction benefits Holy Trinity
When the FHSAA released the fall point totals in the annual race for the Floyd E. Lay Sunshine Cup, it included Holy Trinity in Class 4A.
That put the Tigers third, but when the FHSAA corrected its standings by placing the Tigers in 3A, the school’s athletic program moved into first place among 3A private schools after the fall sports season.
Holy Trinity scored 58 points in the fall, ahead of second-place Westminster Christian at 49.75. Points are awarded for each program’s finish in FHSAA championships and district titles. Points can be deducted for infractions.
