Senior Night came with a little bonus for Gracie Harrigan.
Taunton's forward entered Wednesday's nonleague game against Brockton just 8 points from becoming the fifth Tiger to reach 1,000 career points. After eclipsing the milestone on a corner 3-pointer, Harrigan finished with 16 points to lead Taunton (11-9) to a 49-35 victory at home.
But individual recognition took a back seat for Harrigan, who only discovered during the last game that she was in range of the milestone. This night was about the team.
Harrigan, Taylah Pelote, and Erica McGreevy were all honored before the game as the Tigers' senior tri-captains. The three have played together for nearly eight years, dating to AAU, travel squads, and numerous all-star teams in the area.
Pelote finished with 13 points, and McGreevy chipped in 9.
