Welcome to the club, Kelsi Nicholson! The Burlington High School junior surpassed 1,000 career points last week.

Nicholson accomplished the feat in the Huskies’ victory at home over rival Meeteetse. She did it on a breakaway layup with her left hand.

Here are a couple of videos of the honor. The first is from a proud mom, Monica Nicholson. The second is a different angle on the court from Burlington High School student Alex Perez.
