It was a special night for Lindsey Duvall, her friends and her family, but some of her teammates didn’t even realize how special it was.
On a running layup in the lane during the second half of Bullitt East’s 66-31 win over Central, Duvall became the Chargers all-time leading scorer, passing former Louisville Cardinals star Alison Bass with 2,567 points. Duvall needed 21 points coming the game to break the record, and once she broke it, Chargers coach Chris Stallings called a time out to huddle the team together and congratulate Duvall.
“It was pretty neat,” Stallings said of the moment. “We called time out, took her out and huddled up and congratulated her. We had kids on our bench that didn’t know what I was congratulating her for, that’s kind of how with Lindsey, it is a team type thing. Lindsey knew and a couple of the kids knew but we came out of the huddle and sat down and I had to explain to some of them for what we were congratulating her for. It was nice for our team and teammates and for the kids she’s played with all her life. I think it meant as much to them as it did to her too.”
The achievement is more incredible considering many were unsure what Duvall’s future would be back in November 2015, when doctors discovered a tumor near the bottom of her left knee. Duvall was expected to miss her entire junior season but she made a remarkable recovery from surgery and treatment and played seven games towards the end of the season.
This year, Duvall’s found her freshman and sophomore form that made her such a highly-sought recruit, and the Louisville commit is currently seventh in the state, averaging 24.5 points per game.
“Like I told her and the kids, our school has had a lot of good players, and there’s a lot of good players on that scoring list, both boys and girls,” Stallings said. “It’s been a pleasure coaching her. She hasn’t run a lot of set plays for her and we just play and there hasn’t been any jealousy or anything like that. She doesn’t worry, doesn’t get hung up in all that so she’s just been a real pleasure to coach and she’s improved her game each year. To see her reach her potential and get to this point is nice, especially after last year, when we weren’t for sure that she would be able to get back to the level she is right now. I think that’s really good to see as well. For the things she’s overcome, that’s rewarding as a coach.”
TRIMBLE CO. WINS EIGHTH REGION ALL “A” REGIONAL
Trimble County got its revenge over Walton-Verona on Friday with a defensive 31-27 win in the Eighth Region All “A” final.
Despite making the Kentucky Sweet 16 in 2016, the Raiders were knocked out of the All “A” Classic last season by Walton-Verona. This time, the Raiders ensured they’d be heading to Frankfort.
The win was even more impressive as Raiders star guard Kaylee Clifford was hampered all game with an ankle injury, but toughed it out and still scored five points.
“Going into the tournament, we knew we had a target on our back. Our kids fought hard to overcome every obstacle, including a significant ankle injury to our tournament MVP, Kaylee Clifford. Our kids absolutely played with the heard of champions and as a result, they are the eighth region class A champions. I am so very proud and blessed to coach them and thank God for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the special team.”
Shelbe Black led the Raiders with 11 points, while Gracie Perry had a game-high 15 points for the Bearcats.
The Raiders play their first-round game in the All “A” Classic state tournament on Jan. 25 against the Sixth Region winner.
