After error corrected, Holloway has 1,000 points after all
The basketball resume of Tiffany Holloway has grown again.
After finishing the season with the mindset that Holloway scored 981 career points for the Andrews Lady Wildcats, scoring tallies were found to have inconsistencies and now Holloway can boast 1,044 for her career. She also broke the 1,000-rebound mark, compiling 1,012 over her four years at Andrews.
Holloway was notified of the accomplishment Thursday morning.
"It's honestly one of the best feelings ever," Holloway said. "That was my goal at the beginning of the year and when I thought that I didn't get it, I was so mad at myself. I was so close and it crushed me that I didn't get it. But now that I've found out that I did get it, I am so happy that I achieved my goal."
Andrews athletic director Lance Bristol will be on hand at the Blue/White All-Star Game Saturday at Enka, to present Holloway with a commemorative ball to celebrate the milestone.
Holloway joins Murphy's Emma Stroup as the second Cherokee County athlete this season to break the 1,000-point threshold. Stroup ended her career with the Lady Bulldogs at 1,043 points and 1,006 rebounds. Both will join Hiwassee Dam's Zoey Jacobsen – who crossed the 1,000-point threshold last season – in representing Cherokee County at the game, which tips off at 6 p.m.
