Landree Moons is new single-game scoring leader

Posted February 28, 2024 at 9:51 am

48 point night tops Bernard Howard’s record that stood for over 75 years

by Al Gibson, Clinton County News Publisher
When Clinton County High School Lady Bulldog senior guard Landree Moons put up that short running shot last Thursday night against Wayne County with 2:03 showing on the fourth quarter game clock to score her 48th point that night, she became the school’s new record holder for most points scored in a single game – girls or boys.
With her 46th point against Wayne County, Moons became the leading girls’ single game scorer, topping a 45 point performance by Brittany Flowers in a game against Dawson Springs on December 22, 2009.
But when she made that next bucket late in the fourth quarter, she passed the record set 75 years ago to become the record holder for all players at Clinton County High School, topping the 47 point mark that had stood since 1948.
