Last week, Kennett High senior guard Verena Woloson became just the fourth female athlete in school history to join the illustrious 1,000-point clubWoloson accomplished the feat while the Lady Blue Demons were competing in the West Chester East Holiday Tournament last Friday afternoon.

Needing 30 points to surpass the milestone entering the two-day event, Woloson scored 17 points in Kennett's first round loss against Chester.

The next day, Woloson also poured in 17 against host W.C. East and notched her 1,000th point on a free-throw in the second half.

She's the first female Kennett High School basketball player to go over 1,000 points since Nicole Smith in 2002.

Aside from Woloson's milestone, Kennett had a rough go of it in the tournament.

The Lady Blue Demons (4-7 overall) lost 52-33 to a tough Chester squad in the opening round of the event.

Woloson led the way with a team-high 17 points. Breanna Whiteside and Maria Rivera each chipped in with five point a piece.

In the consolation round game last Friday afternoon, Kennett then fell to host W.C. East by a score of 46-43.

Woloson led the way in that game as well with 17 points. Whiteside finished with 15, and senior Kara Kennard added four points in the loss.

Kennett swings back into action on Jan. 3 when they travel to Great Valley to take on a Lady Patriots team who currently leads the Ches-Mont League's American Division.
