Last night, Chelsea McCaulsky joined an exclusive club of only 14 others to score 1,000 points for the Lady Devils basketball team in B-A’s blowout win over Moshannon Valley.

Chelsea was only 15 points away from getting 1,000 before the game. After scoring five in the first quarter, she was able to hit a three-pointer in the second to get 1,000.

She finished the game with 20 points and is now 15th on the all time scoring leaderboard for the Lady Devils.

“It was exciting to get it over with, but now that it’s over I feel the pressure is off a little bit,” Chelsea said.

Chelsea joins an exclusive club that is headed by 2020 grad Alli Campbell, who leads all of Blair County and District 6 with 3,019 points. Karson Swogger is second with 2,520.

“Growing up, I’ve always watched (the top B-A scorers) score their thousand points, and I always knew I wanted to do it,” Chelsea said. “It feels great to have my name on that list. Knowing I’m only the 15th girl in school history to score 1,000 makes it more rewarding.”

By the end of the season Chelsea could easily move up three spots, at least. Sakeria Haralson has 1,029 and Riley D’Angelo has 1,039, so those spots are very much within McCaulsky’s reach.

The Lady Devils won the game last night 65-14. B-A had no problem with the Damsels, only allowing five points in the second half.

Along with Chelsea McCaulsky’s 20 points, Lydia Worthing scored 10 points and picked up 10 rebounds to help the team.

The Lady Devils are now 13-3 with their next game against Claysburg-Kimmel Wednesday 1/25.
