The Quest For 1,000


Tori Harris reached a milestone that most other basketball players can only dream of: scoring 1,000 career points. She scored her 1,007th point at home against West Babylon on Thursday, January 28.

By reaching this feat she will join a very selective list of both girls and boys  at High School West. Tori would only be the seventh person to join this exclusive 1,000 point club. Individual stats and milestones are great, but as any player would, she wants to lead her team to a title. Even if their playoff push comes a little short, it is still an incredible accomplishment for Tori.

For boys basketball, this has been a record breaking year as well. Lead by Kian Dalyrimple, the team has broken 3 records that will most likely be unbroken for many years to come. In a game against Eastport-South Manor, the team knocked down 17 total 3-pointers, with Kian totaling 10 out the 17. Both of these were records that shattered the previous holder’s totals.

Additionally, just two days ago, Dalyrimple broke yet another record. Going into the locker room at half time, the team was down 1, and Kian had just 3 points. Despite being down at the half, they achieved the win, mainly due to the fact that Kian scored 27 points in the 3rd quarter alone and finished with 34 on the night. 18 of his 27 points in that quarter came on 6 three pointers: adding to his tremendous total of 41 three pointers on the season. All of theses records were great individual and team accomplishments.

It is very rare that West has such great teams and players for girls and boys in the same year. That’s what makes this year special, not only for Tori and Kian, but for both teams.
