Junior shooting guard Isis Rodriguez scored her 1,000th career point on Jan. 27, reaching the mark faster than any player in the history of the MPA girls’ basketball program.
Isis, a three-year starter and three-time all-ISL selection, became the eighth member of the program’s 1,000-point club with a pair of free throws in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 86-26 win against St. Francis De Sales.
Her seven predecessors are Liana Akkawi ’08, Kate Kozacik Galley ’93, Christine Linnerud ’01, Jaclyn Mortimer Latteri ’01, Gabrielle Ogbevire ’16, Lopa Pandya ’04, and Shaneah Taylor ’01. Each is a member of the MPA Athletic Walk of Fame except for Akkawi and Ogbevire, who have yet to complete the 10-year waiting period for eligibility.
Averaging about 18 points per game this season, Isis is on pace to break the program’s career scoring record (1,273 points) held by Pandya, who previously also was MPA’s youngest 1,000-point scorer.
