Two Area Athletes Hit 1,000 Career Points!

Gracey Damron of Kewanee and Julian Samuels of Annawan both reached the 1,000 point milestone this week with each scoring over 20 points on their historic night.

 

Damron reached 1,000 points on Monday with a 25 point performance against Orion. Dr. Chris Sullens recalls the event during the MLK tournament...

 

Dr. Chris Sullens also reminisced about Kelly Lindbeck becoming Kewanee's all-time leading scorer in school history...

Julian "Julz" Samuels reached the 1,000 point benchmark in a win against Princeville last night. The Senior ended the night with a 28 point performance, which is becoming more and more ordinary. Julian's biggest fan, his father Mark Samuels had this to say, "Julian's Mom and I are extremely proud of him. Basketball is important to Julz and he puts in the extra work to accomplish feats like this. Keep it up, keep it moving and Go Braves!" 

 

Congratulations to Gracey and Julian!
