Cecil sets career scoring mark in victory 

Just one month after eclipsing the 1,000-point mark for her career, Oak Harbor junior Andrea Cecil did herself one better by scoring a career-high 40 points and breaking the career scoring record of 1,152 points in the Rockets' 80-41 victory over Elmwood. 

On Jan. 13, Cecil scored what was then a career high of 36 points in Oak Harbor's 79-58 win over Edison, a game that saw her score the 1,000th point of her career. During that game, Cecil also broke the school's single-game record of 35 points, which was held by Kelly Kretz for 33 years. And the career scoring mark, which she now holds with 1,164 points, was held for 29 years by Amy Klavinger.
