Scoring 1,000 points in a high school basketball career is a rare, but Loogootee has 22 outstanding basketball players that have reached that mark.
High School principal John Mullen says the school’s first 1,000-point scorer was in 1958. Since then 14 Loogootee boys, five Loogootee girls and three players from the former St. John’s school can add their name to the list.
The 22 will be honored Saturday night, when the Lions host arch-rival Barr-Reeve in boys basketball. Nineteen of the former players are expected to be present, while the remaining three will be represented by family members.
