No. 13 Record setting players in D9 girls’ basketball

In a good year, you might get to see one school scoring record in basketball broken.

But in 2018, we got to witness four girls’ school records broken in District 9.

North Clarion’s Tori Obenrader (2,115), Karns City’s Emily Hegedus (1,735), A-C Valley’s Ellie Thompson (1,527) and Kane’s Trinity Clark (1,209) all set school records during the year.

Obenrader broke the mark held by her cousin, Wendy Obenrader, of 1,822 points that stood for 27 years, Hegedus broke the record of 1,496 set by Elizabeth Whitmer in 1987, Thompson knocked off the school mark of 1,265 set by Hillary McCall in 2002 and Clark topped the record of 1,185 points set in 2013 by Kaila Jamerson.

Three of the players earned All-State honors with Obenrader a first-team Class 1A choice, Hegedus a second-team Class 3A selection and Thompson a second-team Class 1A player.
