Reaching 1000 career points as a high school basketball player is quite a rare accomplishment.  Maybe not so in the Miami Valley Conference ... at least not this season, as four players have reached the milestone this winter!

A pair of MVC basketball stars reached the career 1000-point mark in the same week!  Summit Country Day's Gabbi Gehner achieved the feat on January 6 against Seven Hills, while Clark Montessori's Bryce Butler did the same some two days later at St. Bernard.

Incidentally, Gabbi is the school record holder in career rebounds at Summit with over 800 (and counting).  Read more about Gabbi's great night HERE.

New Miami's Casey Burr became the third player to eclipse 1000 career points in a game at Milford Christian Academy February 2.  The three-sport standout for the Lady Vikings tallied points 1000 and 1001 early in the third quarter.

May be hard to believe, but St. Bernard's Janice Allen scored her 1000th career point one night after Casey accomplished the feat!  The senior nailed a three-pointer (shown below) on February 3 at home against Lockland for her 1000th point!

Congratulations to these fine athletes!

BOYS' SWIMMING:  Seven Hills will look to duplicate its 2014-15 success in the pool this winter.  The Stingers not only won their second consecutive Miami Valley Conference title, but won the Division II State Team Championship as well!  Co-Swimming of the Year Tim Hagemeister returns to lead the Stingers.  The Conference Swim Meet is scheduled for Saturday at Cincinnati Country Day beginning at 2:30. 

GIRLS' BOWLING:  The Miami Valley Conference doesn't sponsor girls' bowling due to a limited number of teams participating, but the girls from Clark Montessori, Cincinnati Christian, and Seven Hills will be shooting for the postseason nevertheless.  Last year, Seven Hills' Audrey Wilson qualified for the State Championships and returns this winter to lead the Lady Stingers.

BOYS' BOWLING:  Seven Hills has won the first two Miami Valley Conference titles and will be shooting for a three-peat this winter.  The Stingers have already recorded six Conference wins this winter.  The 2014-15 Player of the Year Corey Wilson returns for the Stingers.

GYMNASTICS:  Both Cincinnati Country Day and Seven Hills finished in the top ten at last year's City Championships.  Details about this year's City Championships will be announced soon.  In the January 8 Cincinnati Country Day Indian Cup, the Lady Indians finished eighth in the thirteen-team field (all Division I schools except for Cincinnati Country Day).
