Another Lady Seahawk has soared in the Boothbay Region High School basketball scoring record books. Senior Glory Blethen scored her 1,000th career point on Feb. 15 on a 21-foot 3-pointer midway into the third quarter in her team’s 42-33 loss to Medomak Valley. Blethen scored 20 points and became the fifth Lady Seahawk and ninth Boothbay Region basketball player to score 1,000 points. Trailing 28-22, guard Kylie Brown found Blethen open her only successful 3-point shot of the game. “I thought it was great Kylie had an assist on it,” Blethen said. “I’m super excited and thankful to these girls (Brown and Jaelyn Crocker) because I wouldn’t been able to do it without them.”

Boothbay Region is now 2-5 in regional high school girls’ play and Medomak Valley improves to 6-1. Earlier in the season, the Panthers beat Boothbay by 20 points in Waldoboro. The Lady Seahawks used a strong first quarter in taking an early 10-6 lead before Medomak Valley’s defensive pressure took its toll. The Lady Seahawks only scored one point in the second quarter, a Blethen free throw, and trailed 18-11 at the half. Boothbay’s third quarter didn’t start any better as the team fell behind 22-11 before rallying to cut the deficit to three points after Blethen connected on her 1,000th point.

Crocker exerted her size in low post by scoring and rebounding to trigger a Boothbay rally. She scored 11 points and Brown added two.
