MONROEVILLE â€” As the first-quarter buzzer sounded, Brookville's Zane Hackett sunk a career achievement: His 1,000th career point.
"It means a lot to me," Hackett said following the game. "I think a lot of it you can attribute to the coaching staff, putting in the extra hours. I owe coach (Dan) Cable and coach (Bud) Baughman a lot. ... A big thanks goes out to all my teammates. Without them, it would've never happened."
Hackett entered Saturday afternoon's PIAA opening round playoff game against Sto-Rox with 993 points.
