Junior Emily Montgomery, The Newest Addition To The 1000 Point Scorers


Emily Montgomery and Coach Ryan Tiberg

On February 2nd, 2023 Junior Emily Montgomery surpassed the 1000th point mark during a conference game in Washburn, Wi. Emily only needed 4 points at the beginning of the game. Her teammates made sure to feed her the ball early. Lily Truchon won the tip and Emily went up for a layup and got the foul called, she made 1 of her 2 free throws. She then layed in a shot while posting up on the block. She was now 1 point away from 1000, she shot again and was fouled. A timeout was called and everyone was excited to see if she was going to make her free throw to pass the mark. She left everyone on edge when she missed her first free throw, but the second free throw was good. The fans and team stood up and applauded as she met her coach Ryan Tiberg at half court where he awarded her the 1000 point ball. Emily tallied up 22pts, 6reb, 4ast, and 3stl for the night. At the next home game they also had a recognition of her achievement before the Varsity game where she was awarded the ball again in front of the home crowd. Congratulations Emily!
