County players reach milestones at nearly same time

Leelanau County is on track to have four.

Basketball fans Friday welcomed a third member to the 1,000-point club in a span of eight days. A fourth member is on pace to join soon.

Leland senior Garett Miller, the odds-on favorite to win the county’s 2018 scoring title, got the party started with a 3-pointer at Kingsley on Jan. 26. Glen Lake senior Savannah Peplinski joined last Thursday against North Bay with a trifecta from the left corner. The next day, senior Thomas Hursey of Suttons Bay followed suit with a fast-break layup against Glen Lake.

Play was stopped for each, followed by rounds of applause.

Eight days. Three milestones. One more to go.

Glen Lake senior Cade Peterson checked in at 942 points for the Onekama game last night.
