Heights’ Weakland now part of program’s scoring history

PATTON — Cambria Heights senior Chloe Weakland became the ninth player in program history and the first since Erin Hoover in 2008 to reach 1,000 points in the Lady Highlanders’ 69-41 win over Marion Center in high school girls basketball on Thursday.

“I couldn’t sit still at all today. I was so excited for this,” Weakland said. “This means so much to me, and I couldn’t have done this without all my teammates.

“The game was much more important (than 1,000 points). I probably could have gotten it last night, and didn’t because I wanted to do it at home.”

Weakland needed nine points and finished with 11.

“I played basketball every summer since sixth grade,” Weakland said. “I barely had a summer. I always had a basketball in my hands. This game means so much to me.”

“This is an awesome honor for her,” said Cambria Heights coach Amber Fees, who was a 1,000-point scorer herself in her Highlanders career. “She’s worked so hard for this.

“She has become one of the most selfless players I have ever coached. She just wants what is best for her teammates. For her to get this huge individual accomplishment, she really deserves it.”

Kirsten Weakland led Heights with 19 points.
