#5 Amanda Kearney hits 2000

The number five story in my countdown takes me back to Amanda Kearney’s magical season with the Branson Lady Pirates.

The scoring machine not only smashed the all-time scoring record but she became the only Pirate, male or female to go over the 2000 mark.  The epic feat came at, of all places, Republic high school in a game the the Lady Pirates had to have.  I was fortunate enough to be on hand broadcasting the game that night.

But with Amanda it wasn’t only the points, it was the leadership.  She lead the Lady Pirates to a spot in the State Quarterfinals.

Kearney is now playing her college ball at Harding Univesity in Arkansas.
