Sarah Schieber's all time scoring record(men and women) lasted 23 years at Caledonia but was broke last week by Owen King when he became the school's new record holder.
Now, Sarah Schieber no longer holds the all time school scoring record or girl's scoring record. Unknowingly, Mariah Schroeder entered last night's first round playoff game against Lake City just 9 points away from breaking Schieber's record(held at 1,719).
It didn't take long for the fast scoring future Metropolitan State University of Denver commit to achieve those 9 points.
During a timeout, an announcement was made that there would be a "special announcement" at the end of the game. Due to MSHSL regulations, timeouts during playoff games can not be taken to award athletes a game ball or announce their achievements like they can be during a regular season contest.
A strong first half and just a few minutes of playing time in the second, Schroeder tallied in a total of 26 points and a first round victory over Lake City, 75-55. Mariah Schroeder now holds the girls all time scoring record with 1,737 points.
A tweet by Schroeder after the game stated, " Couldn't have done it without my amazing team<3."
Schroeder also stated later in an interview, "All the glory goes to God, and I'm super grateful to be blessed with such great coaches, teammates, and supporters."
Caledonia will now advance to play Rochester Lourdes on Monday, February 27th at 7:30 in Rochester.
"I couldn't really care less though, as long as we keep advancing," Schroeder said.
