Holden high school basketball player Aiden Morarity scored the 1,000th point of his career on January 27, in a game against KC Lutheran in the Crest Ridge Boys Basketball Tournament.
Morarity’s accomplishment comes during his junior year after entering this season with 615 total points scored during his freshman and sophomore seasons. He stood 25 points short of the 1,000-point career mark when the Holden boys basketball team tipped off against KC Lutheran in the consolation semifinals of the tournament.
“Scoring 1,000 points is an impressive accomplishment for anyone to achieve by their senior year. It’s even more rare for people to do it as a junior,” said Holden boys basketball head coach Nathan Martin. “Aiden has worked hard the past couple of years, and it has been paying off for him, not only for basketball, but football and baseball, also. He is a really important member of all of the teams that he plays on.”
Morarity put the 1,000-points mark within reach this season by increasing his offensive output as the Holden boys basketball team’s leading scorer.
“I honestly wasn’t expecting to get it as early as I thought I would,” said Morarity in regard to reaching the 1,000-point mark. “I didn’t realize I was going to be even better than I was last year. I was honestly proud of myself with just the ability I had to reach that to reach that as not even a senior yet.”
The milestone point for Morarity occurred in the third quarter of the game against KC Lutheran, a team he has experienced success against in the past.
