ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- After winning 24 games last season, the Alpharetta girls are 22-4 this year. Thanks to a pair of senior leaders the Lady Raiders have been posting impressive numbers all season long.
Just this week senior guard Lauren Brown reached the 1,000 point milestone for her career in the Lady Raiders victory over Johns Creek. "She needed 11 points," says Alpharetta Girls Coach Michael House. "It was a very special moment."
Brown's milestone came a week and a half after fellow senior Kylee Smith topped the 2,000 point mark for her career. It happened on Senior Night against South Forsyth. The Vanderbilt signee was happy it happened in front of the home crowd. "I was super excited to be among family and friends," says Smith. "I have played here since the 4th grade in Junior Raiders."
Kylee Smith has been nominated for McDonald's All American honors and will find out if she makes the team Thursday.
Lauren Brown is bound for Elon next fall, but is taking aim at some final goals for Alpharetta "We want to win Saturday and secure the best possible seed for the state tournament. I want a ring, it's my senior year."
