In sports, scoring isn’t all that it takes to be a competitor. But it is an integral part of the game; without it, there is no contest. High-level scoring takes great athletes demonstrating consistency, discipline and determination. We are fortunate to have had several of these types of athletes grace the harwood in Albright Gymnasium. They were celebrated this past Friday for reaching the impressive milestone of scoring 1000 points or more during their basketball career at Southern High School.
