The facts: Hannah reached 1,000 career points scoring in an 81-29 win over Lansing Eastern last Tuesday, and her twin sister Lindsay also passed 1,000 during a 74-56 win over Everett on Friday. The two then helped Grand Ledge win the CAAC Blue outright with a 53-21 victory over East Lansing, which had won the last 11 league titles. It was Grand Ledge’s first league title since the 1990s. Hannah is averaging 15.4 points per game, and Lindsay 13.0. The Orwat twins will play for NCAA Division I Oakland next year.

From coach David Jones: “Hannah has had a great four years of high school. Both of them (Orwat sisters) put in a large amount of extra time trying to improve their game year-round. What sets them apart is their determination. Both of them are playing at an extremely confident level, and are looking to do so many more things than scoring that are making the team better. Reaching 1,000 points is a great accomplishment for two players. To have two players do it in the same week is rare. They feed off each other and work real hard at it. When I started here five years ago, Hannah and Lindsay were playing in eighth grade. They have been the strength of our program the past few years. Their work ethic, trying to improve each other night in and night out has risen the competitive level on our team and made people around them better.”
