BOLTON LANDING — Maria Baker became the second Bolton junior this season to reach 1,000 points for her basketball career on Tuesday night.

Needing 24 points to reach the milestone, Baker scored 31 in the Eagles’ 47-28 Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference victory over Lake Placid.

After scoring 23 points in the first half, Baker netted her 1,000th career point on a free throw in the third quarter.

Baker joined classmate Katelyn Van Auken, who accomplished the feat last month, also against Lake Placid. Van Auken finished with 11 points as the pair scored all but five of Bolton’s points Tuesday night.

“She had a big first half, then in the second half, she missed her first couple of shots, but she got to the line and she was able to get it done at home,” Eagles coach Luke Schweickert said. “Two juniors in one year getting their 1,000th point, both doing it in a win — couldn’t ask for more.”
