OSCODA, Mich. — On Dec. 28, 2019, Oscoda senior Lauren Langley reached an important milestone in her high school career. Against Parma Western in the Motor City Roundball Classic, Langley scored her 1,000th point as an Owl.
“I was finally able to get into the post, touch the ball and make a move,” said Langley. “It was good to have it happen.”
This was the milestone she has always wanted. With a strong work ethic and determination, she made that fantasy turn into a reality.
“The hard work is paying off,” said Langley. “The extra hours in the gym shooting and the weight room is making it all worth it.”
Langley became the fourth girl in Oscoda history to reach the milestone. She is one of four girls in the program to reach 1,000 points. Last year, Katelyn Etherton reached the milestone where she dropped 26 points in a 60-29 victory over Whittemore-Prescott.
“To have back-to-back girls is really cool,” said head coach Mark Toppi. “We’re hoping to have another player next year.”
Langley currently has 1,036 points in her high school career. She is 326 points shy from breaking Oscoda’s all-time leading scorer, which is held by Cheri Meier, a record set back in 1986.
