Kristen Gaffney joined elite company on Tuesday.
The Green Hope senior and Vanderbilt recruit scored her 2,000th point in the third quarter in the Falcons' 51-44 win against Holly Springs. Gaffney scored 18 in the win and now has 2,006 in her career.
Below is video of Gaffney's 12th and 13th points of the night (Nos. 2,000 and 2,0001 for her career), which came from the free throw line.
"She just wants to win, and she works really hard," Green Hope coach Michael Robinson said.
Gaffney is the school's all-time scoring leader and now ranks third in Wake County history for most points in a career.
- Karen Clayton, Broughton -- 2,343 points (1989-92)
- Lisa Squirewell, Wake Forest-Rolesville -- 2,168 points (1978-81)
- Kristen Gaffney, Green Hope -- 2,006 points (2008-present)
"I'm really thankful that my team, my coaches and all the fans and coaches support me like that," Gaffney said.
The win had more significance, as it was Green Hope's 40th straight win against Tri-Nine Conference competition (including two previous conference tournaments). Read the story from The Cary News by clicking here.
