Jordan Thompson (11), a shooting guard on the girls varsity basketball team, has scored 1,268 points in her basketball career so far, surpassing the school record of 1,214 career points accumulated by Daniza Rodriguez (’13).

Of Jordan’s 1,268 career points, she has scored 523 this season, for a total of 27.5 points per game. She has played in every one of the team’s 19 games so far and also leads the team in total field goals, free throws and rebounds made.

Jordan expressed her thoughts on attaining the achievement, as well as what her future goals are for the season.  

“I think it’s pretty cool. I know Daniza’s a really good player, and so surpassing her scoring is a really cool accomplishment,” Jordan said. “I think what I really need to improve on is probably my defense, because I’m probably most known for my offense and scoring, but defense is also a really big part of basketball, and I want to be able to get things done on both ends of the floor.”

Satchi Thockchom (10), a small forward on the team, discussed what she feels are Jordan’s strongest points as a player.

“She’s super reliable, and when she’s in the game you know that she can deliver, which is great. I have a lot of confidence when Jordan’s on first,” Satchi said. “She’s a great all-around player, but her strongest points are probably shooting and rebounding and putting up really contested shots under the basket.”

The team currently has a 14-5 record overall and a 3-2 record in the league. The girls next play a home league game against King’s Academy on Friday.
