Kate Keenan ‘21 has hit many three-pointers in her lifetime, but perhaps none more memorable than the one she swished through the Van Norman Field House net January 3rd against South Kingstown.
With around 4 minutes remaining in the first half, teammate Jackie Faulise ‘20 saved a ball from going out of bounds and delivered a precise pass to Keenan on the left wing in front of the visiting bench. Without hesitation, Keenan caught the pass and put a shot up beyond the three-point arc that would result in the 998th, 999th, and 1,000th points of her career.
The basket earned Keenan, already a two-time All-Division Selection and reigning 1st Team All-Stater, yet another achievement by becoming the 18th member of Wheeler’s 1,000 Point Club. She becomes the 6th Warrior student-athlete to accomplish the feat since 2015.
