FULDA -- Randi Tiesler came into Thursday’s game needing just four points to reach a milestone.
And on a 3-pointer in the first half, the senior guard for Fulda’s girls basketball team scored her 1,000th career point.
“She’s done a great job, she’s a third-year starter and she got it early here in her senior year,” Fulda head coach Gregg Slaathaug said. “I’m very proud of her. She works extremely hard.”
Tiesler finished with 14 points and five assists for the Raiders, who earned a 70-65 victory over Mountain Lake Area.
“She also has a lot of assists for us the last three years,” Slaathaug said. “She has the ball in her hands a lot. She has to bring the ball up the floor and score some points. It’s a nice accomplishment for her and her teammates because we do run some pretty good sets for her and everyone touches it and screens for her. It’s always fun to have a kid do that. It’s the 10th one I’ve had and it’s pretty special.”
Evany Luna scored 16 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Emily Schroer had 14 points, while Courtney Zins had nine points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Raiders, who improve to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in the Red Rock Conference.
