Hamilton’s Aubrey Sorrells was honored for getting her 1,000th rebound in her career for the Hamilton Lady Aggies basketball team.
Sorrells was honored with her milestone basketball and was celebrated by her team and fans at the Hamilton gym before their game against Curry on Friday, Jan. 27.
“Aubrey is special. She’s the type of athlete that every coach wants to coach and that some coaches never get the chance to. I have been very blessed to have that opportunity in my first year,” said Sorrells’ coach Shelby Pace.
“One thousand rebounds and over 1,500 points all before the end of her junior year is really an amazing feat. She is so deserving of all the recognition, and I know she has a very bright future ahead of her.”
Hackleburg’s JaQuan Reeder scored his 1,000th career point this season.
Reeder was honored with his milestone 1,000-point basketball after Hackleburg’s game against Cherokee, where he scored his 1,000th point.
“JaQuan is a very talented player who has started on varsity since the eighth grade. He is an extremely coachable kid who loves basketball,” said Hackleburg Coach Adam McCarley.
“We are extremely proud of him for reaching 1,000 career points. It’s much deserved for all the hard work he puts in the gym.”
