Crosby-Ironton eighth-grader Tori Oehrlein made Minnesota girls basketball history this week when she became the fastest player to reach the 1,000-point milestone.
On Feb. 8, Oehrlein scored 43 points to power the Rangers to a 69-35 victory over Aitkin. That output pushed her career scoring total past the 1,000-point threshold and it took just 40 games to do so, according to Matt Pederson, the League’s basketball historian.
Minnehaha Academy freshman Addi Mack reached the 1,000-point mark in her first game this season, 49 games into her prep varsity career. On Friday night, Providence Academy eighth-grade guard Maddyn Greenway hit the milestone during the Lions' 79-30 victory over Breck. She accomplished the feat in 46 games.
Prior to this season, Braham's Rebekah Dahlman was the quickest to the 1,000-point level in 61 games. She scored the 1,000th point of her standout career in the third game of her freshman season. Dahlman is Minnesota’s all-time leader in basketball with 5,060 points.
The 5-foot-11 Oehrlein averaged 21.7 points per game as a seventh-grader at the varsity level. This season, she has pushed that to 28.7 points per contest through 19 games.
