Milestone Reached

by Nick Vitrano

For as long as we have celebrated sports, we have embraced its duality.  Though there is no “I” in “TEAM,” there is no denying that individual milestones are worthy of note and praise.  Sometimes those landmarks achieved serve as brilliant snapshots in time – lone peaks on the horizon.  Other times, they tell a more complete story of perseverance and consistency.  Such is the case with the career 1,000 point mark in high school hoops.

1,000 points is kind of a big deal.  Now project that achievement onto the resume of a junior.  Yeah…a JUNIOR!  Enter this week’s WIXX Preps Pick: Green Bay Southwest’s Natisha Hiedeman.

Hiedeman netted her 1,000th in a 26-point effort a week ago – a 56-53 OT Trojan victory over Pulaski (she added 23 on Monday against Sheboygan South, another GBSW win).  Congratulations to Natisha Hiedeman and the entire GBSW team for all of their success.  You’ve gotta love when sports polarity is fully realized – individual accomplishment in the midst of team triumph.
