Autumn Everson broke the school record as Dugger Union dominated host Palestine, Illinois on Monday night.
Everson scored 51 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs to an 87-41 victory, the 10th in 14 games for Dugger Union.
“Ironically, Chrystal Salesman held the previous record with 44 points against the same team on Nov. 30, 1994,” said Dugger Union coach Joe Pigg. “Autumn made nine 3-pointers, which broke the record of seven set by teammate Kyndall Foli last year.”
Pigg said that Everson made 21 of 28 field goals, including 9 of 14 from 3-point range.
Everson also had 12 steals, three short of the school record.
The 87 points was not a school record for a girls team from Dugger. The Lady Bulldogs defeated Palestine 97-50 on Dec. 12, 2005, but it is not known if that is the school record.
The Lady Bulldogs will play at Turkey Run on Thursday.
Notes: The 51 points is the most by a high school girls basketball player in Sullivan County history as Daria Weitekamp (40) of Sullivan and North Central’s Tracie Russell of North Central (41) hold their school’s single-game records.
Joey Davidson of Sullivan holds the boys record at SHS with 44 points.
Brody Boyd of Dugger scored 51 against Hutsonville, Illinois on Dec. 9, 1998 and Ryan Turner of North Central scored 52 points against Hutsonville on Jan. 12, 1993.
