Jenkins, Louderback, Claar, and Wells Hit 1,000 Points During the Basketball Season [VIDEOS]
Four more high school basketball players passed the 1,000 point mark in their prep career during the 2020-21 season.
All four were all-state players for their respective schools this past season.
The first to accomplish it was junior Brenli Jenkins from Rock Springs. She’s a three-time all-state performer for the Tigers. Jenkins accomplished the feat in a victory at Star Valley earlier this year, 49-28. It was a nice step-back three-pointer from the right-wing.

Jenkins led Class 4A in scoring last season at 21.2 points per game. She had the best single-game scoring performance in the big-school division with 34 at Laramie on Jan. 9, 2021. Jenkins also averaged 7.2 rebounds and 4.2 steals per game for Rock Springs.
The next to reach the mark was Upton senior Katlyn Louderback. She is a two-time all-state player on the hardcourt for the Bobcats. Louderback passed the mark with a left-corner triple in the second quarter against Lead-Deadwood, SD. Upton went on to win that game, 63-36. The video is courtesy of Upton High School AD Beau Garcia.
Louderback helped the Bobcats to a runner-up finish at this year’s Class 1A girls basketball state tournament. She averaged 15.9 points per game last season. That mark led the east-side of the state and was third-best in Class 1A. Louderback also added 1.9 assists and 3.1 steals per game for the Bobcats.
The final two are teammates from Dubois High School, junior Max Claar, and senior Jaryd Wells. Both were named all-state for the first time in their careers after the 2020-21 season concluded. Claar and Wells achieved the 1,000 point mark in the same game at Midwest on Feb. 19, 2021. Claar reached the mark on an offensive put-back, while Wells made a jump shot.

They helped the Rams reach their first Class 1A boys’ state tournament for the first time since 2014. The Rams went 1-2 at state. They won their first-round game, lost in the semis to eventual champion Upton, and then fell in the third-place game to Southeast. Dubois finished their season with a 10-8 overall record. Claar averaged 16.4 points and led Class 1A with 11.6 rebounds per game. Wells averaged 16.6 points and three assists per game.
