Last night was a night to remember for a pair of Southern Massachusetts communities as Duxbury’s Michela North and Stoughton’s Aaron Calixte joined the 1,000-point club in historic fashion.
By hitting a free throw with 6:36 remaining in the second, North became the first Duxbury girl to reach 1,000 points in over a decade. By reaching the milestone in the 17th game of her junior season, North became the fastest girl in program history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.
Not to be outdone, Calixte buried a pull-up three-pointer from the top of the key to eclipse the 1,000-point mark, and send Black Knight fans into a frenzy. Calixte became the first junior in program history to reach the milestone.
North finished the evening with 17 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in a 50-48 victory over Hingham, while Calixte poured in 32 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a 72-52 blowout of Hockomock rival Canton.
