TIFFIN - Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic senior Adrienne Wehring needed just five points on Thursday to become the school's all-time leading scorer.
In the second quarter Wehring bucketed that momentous basket and finished with 16 points in the game as the Crimson Streaks defeated Tiffin Calvert 52-35.
"I'm extremely proud of Adrienne breaking the school record," said SJCC coach Mallory Holliday. "She's put in a lot of hard work and time in the off-season and has really expanded her game.
"She always comes to practice with a positive attitude and great work ethic. She's a lot of fun to be around. She leads by example, and I'm honored to have been able to coach her."
The previous record of 1,311 points was held by Becky Babione, now Becky Cotterman, who played from 2001-2005.
SJCC opened up a 14-2 lead after one quarter with a pair of 3-pointers by Belle Michael and another 3-pointer by Wehring.
Michael, who finished with 11 points, added five more points in the second quarter while Brooke Casperson scored three of her 11 points in the second.
Shelby Hemminger led the Senecas with ten points.
With her 16 points on the night, Wehring now has 1,323.
"Being the all-time leading scorer at my school is one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever done," Wehring said. "I could not have done it without the help of my teammates, coaches, and especially my family."
Wehring said setting the record was something she's had in mind for the past few years.
"I set this goal for myself my sophomore year when my dad told me that it was reachable," said Wehring. "After hearing him say that, I just kept working hard and it finally paid off. It was a great experience."
