STANDISH - Alma High School senior guard Kenzie Seeley surpassed the 1,000-point plateau on Friday night in leading the Panthers to a Tri-Valley Central Conference win over host Standish Sterling by a 61-15 final.

Seeley, who will play basketball at Northwood alongside her sister Maddy this fall, needed 13 points coming into Friday's game and she finished with 17 points in the win.

She now joins her sister Maddy, who scored her 1,000th point for the Panthers in December of 2013 in a win over Swan Valley, in the 1,000-point club.

"I remember is was real exciting when Maddy got it and I have had that goal ever since," said Kenzie Seeley, a four-year starter who was on the floor when Maddy netted 1,000. "Both my parents had good college (athletic) careers (at Bowling Green) and they have encouraged me to me to be the best I can."

Alma coach Scott Apple added, "She had a tremendous work ethic and leads us by example. She has received a lot of accolades already, but everything is well-deserved because she has put the work in."

Seeley also added in six steals and three assists in Friday's win.

Alma improves to 5-1 overall via the victory and is now 4-1 in TVC Central play.

The Panthers took a 23-2 lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

Madi Doolittle added in nine points while Olivia Apple had five steals, five assists and six points.

Abby Mellinger also had eight points.

Alma returns to action Tuesday at Chesaning.
