Going into the basketball season, junior Lynnjay Brown knew the milestone was easily in reach. It was a number that no female in the history of Dickinson High School had ever achieved: 1,000 career points. In the first game of the season, during the opening round of the Lady Rams Classic tournament against DAPSS, Brown was able to score 27 points and reach the milestone in the middle of the 3rd quarter. With the team already with a commanding lead, Coach Andrew Dick immediately called a timeout and removed her from the game to a standing ovation and friends and family in the stands to witness her accomplishment.
Sitting on 973 points at the end of last season; the question wasn’t if Brown, who hails from Wilmington, would reach this milestone, the question was when. She had already become the most prolific scorer in the school’s history by the end of her sophomore year, and she had earned numerous postseason awards and recognition.
Having hit the mark during the first game of the year, it is not unreasonable to think that she could make it to 2,000. With a little more than half of the season completed, Brown is averaging 22.4 points per game and is pushing 1,300 career points. With some help from her teammates, she could reach this goal by the end of her senior season.
