Luray High School senior guard Emilee Weakley became only the 36th player in the history of the Virginia High School League (VHSL) to surpass 2,000 career points in basketball on the road Friday night at Page County.

Weakley scored a game-high 32 points in a 66-43 win over rival Page County. The Bull Run District matchup was halted in the third quarter to recognize Weakley’s achievement.

Weakley’s milestone takes on even more meaning when considering the fact that she missed a dozen or more games last year due to a COVID-shortened season, and the fact that she’s also been out the past week under COVID protocols.

The senior became the all-time leading scorer for Luray just a few games into the season, surpassing the likes of Bridgewater College Hall of Famer Craig Tutt (currently the principal at Springfield Elementary) and the current women’s head basketball coach at Eastern Mennonite University, Jenny Logan. Both Logan and Tutt surpassed 1,800 points while at LHS.

Now, Weakley still has a dozen or more games left this season (depending on the postseason) to add to her already amazing accomplishment.
