Woodbridge senior Reghan Robinson entered last Thursday’s home contest against Lake Forest needing five points to reach 1,000 career points. Robinson made a three-pointer late in the first quarter to reach the milestone.

“It’s a bittersweet moment with all the work I put in,” said Robinson. “I’m happy to do it at home with my home crowd. I had a slow start. After I picked up the energy I knew my team had my back.”

Robinson became the sixth Woodbridge girls’ basketball player to reach 1,000 points and the seventh Raider player. The other players are Janeira Scott, Cha’Kya Johnson, Altia Anderson, LaTaija Maddox, Tiandra Felix and Demetrius Lopez.

Robinson said scoring 1,000 points eventually became a goal.

“It was probably a thought of mine but as the years went on it was a goal,” she said.

Throughout her years with the varsity team, Reghan’s father and coach Ike Robinson has been there with her.

“It’s great to have all those big moments and to have him with me on the court through the good and the bad,” said Reghan Robinson.

The Raiders have a lot of young players this season, players that look to seniors like Robinson for leadership.

“We definitely have a lot of work to do with them. We know they can do it. They’re definitely coming along since the beginning,” she said.
