In South Dakota, a basketball player scoring 2,000 points in her high school career is somewhat rare. In early February, Abby Hora of Viborg-Hurley became the 24th player in South Dakota history to join the 2,000 point club. While Hora may get the credit in the stat book – her lifelong friendship with a teammate on the court is what made the 2,000 point journey memorable.
It was the final home game of the season for Viborg-Hurley as they hosted Bridgewater-Emery on February 8. Entering the game, Hora needed 20 points to reach 2,000. In just the first quarter, she put up eleven.
