In a game against long-time rival Miss Porter’s on Wednesday, February 5, senior Hannah Iwaszkiewicz of Woodbridge became the first player in The Ethel Walker School’s basketball history to score 1,000 career points. It was in the third period of the intense game that Hannah sunk her 999th and 1,000th shot from the foul line.
“Hitting 1000 points is a wonderful accomplishment for Hannah,” said varsity basketball coach John Monagan. “But I would argue her larger accomplishment is what she has given to her teammates and to this program over her years here. She has brought with her a lot of points, sure, but also a dedication to the school, a love for her teammates and a commitment to the program. We are very proud that she can celebrate this milestone as a member of the Walker’s community.”
Just a few weeks ago, Iwaszkiewicz became the school’s all-time leading scorer, breaking the previous school record of 800 points. After the game Hannah’s family and the Walker’s community gathered to celebrate her achievement.
