Harpursville, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
" It feels good to beat a guy, I'm going to be honest. A lot of guys think they are better, and I'm not saying he wasn't better, but it still feels good."
3 days after setting a new mark for girls scoring in section history, Harpursville senior Hannah Kimmel moved to the top of another list.
She passed Jim Ryder's 23 year-old-mark to become the section's all time leading scorer.
She needed 22 in Saturday's game, and had 18 after the first quarter.
Her coach says, " We had the same game plan we did Wednesday against Unadilla Valley. We didn't change anything, no special sets. We just told them to attack the basket and play pressure defense and whatever happens happens."
So now the only record left to be broken is her own, as every basket Kimmel pours in from here on out will set a new all time mark.
" It is very difficult, I've been on varsity since 7th grade, so it has taken a little while to get. Hopefully my record will be hard to beat. You always hope your record will be hard to beat. We'll see if someone can beat it."
That mark will get higher and higher.
Hannah has scored more than 30 points a game her last 5 games, and is averaging just under 30 on the season.
Now ranked 4th in the state, she hopes to keep dropping in baskets well past the 5 games left to her regular season.
" Just want to have a great winning season and hopefully go really far and set my own record. "
