Bowlby, Crim reach basketball career milestones

Two area basketball players accomplished program milestones in their regular-season finales Friday.

 

In Waldron’s 75-49 victory over Anderson Prep, senior Tyler Bowlby entered the program’s 1,000 career points club.

 

Bowlby joined Jared Lux (1,313 career points), Justin Barnard (1,181), Jordan Barnard (1,138) and

Darwin Shurig (1,110) as 1,000-point scorers at Waldron High School.

 

Bowlby will add to his career total Wednesday when the Mohawks (5-17) begin postseason play at

Southwestern High School against Rising Sun (6-10).

 

Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
