Claire Killian Gets Number 2,000

Claire Killian, Watertown-Mayer senior wing, scored her 2,000th career point on January 14 of this year—ironically, in one of just 2 losses the Royals (now 19-2) have suffered this year. She scored 19 in a 67-62 loss at Eden Valley-Watkins. Eleven days earlier, I saw her score 30 at Heritage Christian in an 80-55 win. She scored 24 the other night in another of the Royals bigger games this year, a 71-68 win over New London-Spicer in 2 OT. A loss in that game would have dropped the Royals into a 1st place tie with New London in the Wright County West, which I imagine was more important to Killian than her 2,000th (or, now, approximately 2,135) points.

The Royals and Killian have 6 more regular season games remaining before the start of sectional playoffs. If the Royals are able to win the Section 5AA title and a trip to the state tournament, which they’re favored to do, at the rate she’s going, Killian might go into the tournament with a total of about 2,330 points.
