Memorable day for two Miami County seniors
By Jim Dabbelt
Two seniors from the same county and separated by only 16 miles reached bigtime milestones today across the Dayton area, as seniors Morgan Haney from Miami East and Kristen Dickison from Milton Union both reached the prestigious 1,000-point mark for their illustrious basketball careers, as both teams earned hard-fought victories on Saturday.
Haney, who is signed to the University of Albany, scored 16 points to lead the Vikings past Arcanum 54-41. She was scoreless at the half, as both teams were missing a lot of easy shots in the first half. Once Haney got going midway through the third period, she netted all 16 points in the final 12 minutes of the game. Camryn Miller added 13 points for the Vikings. Kayla O’Daniel scored 11 to lead the Trojans.
Dickison continued her strong start to the season as she scored 20 points to help Milton Union pull away in the fourth quarter for a 42-27 victory. Dickison also had seven rebounds and seven steals in the Bulldogs victory. She was the only Milton Union player to reach double figures.
With 6:17 left in the second period, Dickison connected on a free throw after a big first quarter, surpassing the milestone in front of her home fans.
Not to be outdone, Anna senior Breah Kuck lit up the Houston Wildcats today, with a record-setting performance.
Kuck drained nine threes for a game high 29 points, leading the Rockets past Houston 59-34. Her nine shots from beyond the arc is a new Anna school record.
