Prep notes: Monona Grove’s McKenna Warnock surpasses 2,000 points; Middleton’s Jeff Kind receives recognition
Monona Grove senior McKenna Warnock surpassed the 2,000 points mark for her girls basketball career.
Warnock scored 44 points in a victory over McFarland on Friday, giving her 2,009 career points, Monona Grove girls basketball coach Tyler Kuehl said.
Warnock moved into 20th place on the state’s all-time scoring list for girls basketball, Kuehl said.
Warnock passed Racine Park’s LaTonya Sims (2,005 points). In Warnock’s sights are Jessica Kelliher of Waukesha North (19th with 2,012) and Jennah (Burkholder) Hartwig of Janesville Parker (18th with 2,033). Hartwig now is the Parker girls basketball coach.
Warnock is averaging 31.7 points per game, which is second in the state.
The 6-foot-2 Warnock, a University of Iowa commit, became the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder for girls and boys basketball last season.
