Amityville Memorial High School senior La’Niya Clark reached a significant milestone as a member of the girls varsity basketball team. In a game at Sayville on Jan. 5, she scored the 1,000th point of her high school career.

La’Niya has been a member of the varsity squad since eighth grade and is a four-year varsity starter. The point guard achieved the accomplishment on a three-point shot in the first quarter of the game. Play was briefly stopped so she could be honored by her coach, Shabue Mosley, and fellow players.

“It’s pretty impressive because on average she scores more than 10 points a game,” said Athletic Director Evan Farkas. “She’s just been a consistent player over the last five years.”

La’Niya has had several games in which she has scored 30 or more points during her Amityville career. She got her start playing CYO basketball in elementary school, and plans to continue next year at the collegiate level.
