OAKLAND — Senior Sophie Holmes registered her 1,000th career point as part of Messalonskee’s 79-29 win over Medomak Valley in a Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class A girls basketball game on Thursday night.

Holmes finished with 33 points for the unbeaten Eagles, netting points Nos. 1,000, 1,001 and 1,002 on a 3-pointer as the final buzzer sounded.

“I’m really glad for her,” Messalonskee head coach Keith Derosby said. “She’s been the ultimate team player her entire career. It was pretty special.”

Holmes scored 15 points in the final quarter en route to the benchmark. Derosby said he entertained removing her from the game on several occasions as the Eagles’ lead ballooned, but he kept Holmes on the floor at her teammates’ insistence.

“She earned it all,” Derosby said. “She got them off rebounds and off steals and at the free throw line.

“Every time we were going to pull her, the rest of the team kept begging me to keep her in.”

Messalonskee, which also got 11 points from McKenna Brodeur, improved to 3-0 while Medomak dropped to 1-2.
