Waklee hits 1,000-point milestone in hoops career

TETON VALLEY, Ida. — Waklee Kunz has reached a milestone that few high school basketball players attain. The high-scoring Teton High senior topped the 1,000-point mark for her career last Saturday in a win over South Fremont.

It wouldn’t have been possible without the support of a strong team, said Teton High School girls basketball coach Shon Kunz.

“This group of five is a great group of girls,” Kunz said. “People don’t score one thousand points unless they are playing on a really good team and have a lot of support from every position.”

Four of the seniors have been high-point scorer in at least one game this year, he noted.

“That says a lot about their teamwork. And they’re students first; they’re leaders of the school, they’re involved in student government, and they have a high average GPA.”

Rather than choosing co-captains, all five seniors are sharing the leadership role—Annalea Brown, Cambrie Streit, Aspen Lasson, Abigail Thomas, and Waklee.

Waklee has played in 91 varsity games at THS, starting in 88 of them. With 1,006 total points scored so far, that’s an average of 11 points per game.
