TROY — Ichabod Crane’s Madie Graham needed seven points to hit 1,000 for her career going into Thursday’s Colonial Council game against Catholic Central. It only took her three shots to reach it, all of them three-pointers. She finished with 32 and the Riders defeated the Crusaders, 60-51.
Madie becomes the second player in program history to reach the feat, joining Tahnee Heins-Bickerton as the only two to do it. Heins, who after high school, went on to star at Division I Seton Hall, is currently the modified coach at ICC. Madie played for her for 2 years in seventh and eighth grade.
“It’s pretty cool to have Tahnee still in the program,” Riders coach Adam Vooris said. “To have both of the top scorers in the program at the same time brings a lot of pride to all of us, especially since there is a 25-year gap between them.”
After hitting the shotthere was a brief celebration. Catholic Central presented Madie with the game ball and she hugged her teammates, coaches and family. After that it was back to business for Graham. She continued her hot hand, scoring 23 more points in leading the Riders to victory.
“She was unbelievable tonight,” Vooris said. “CCHS played her close all night. She did not get many open looks and made a lot of contested shots.”
The Riders were 20 for 25 from the free throw line, which was the difference in the game.
Graham also had 10 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 steals for the Riders. She scored a total of 104 points this week in 3 games. Delaney More contributed nine points and 10 rebounds.
Sarah Mattfeld led CCHS with 16 points. Angelena Giuliano chipped in with 14 and Brenna Graber had 13.
