IMLAY CITY — Mary Lengemann saw to it she would etch her name in the record books, surpassing the 1,000-point plateau for her career in a 65-29 win against visiting Blue Water Area Conference foe Richmond last Friday night.

Lengemann, a senior, netted her 1,000th and 1,001st career points when she converted a layup with 6:57 to play before halftime. That upped her point total to 15 that evening and staked Imlay City to a 25-10 advantage at the time.

She would add 20 more points the rest of the way, helping Imlay City register a lopsided 65-29 triumph.

Lengemann becomes just the fourth Imlay City basketball player to surpass the 1,000-point plateau. Milli Martinez, Tracey (Moenaert) Combs and Ashton Combs were the others to attain that feat.
