HSGBB: BA’s Washington hits 1K mark in crosstown clash

Mike’Ala Washington crossed the 1,000-point mark in her career at Beaufort Academy, and the Eagles soared to a 62-22 win over crosstown foe Holy Trinity on Friday in SCISA Region 4 girls basketball action. 

Washington needed only eight points to reach the milestone, and the junior star did so in the first half as BA raced to a 39-13 halftime advantage.

“I am so excited for Mike’Ala and her accomplishment,” BA coach Andrew Ienuso said. “She has put in so much work to get to this day. Proud of her leadership both on and off the floor. She has a very bright future.”

Tahleea Hayward led all scorers with 23 points, while Washington and Kamirah Freeman added 12 apiece and senior guard Mary Hanna Hiers scored 10. 

Eliza Gaillard scored 14 points and grabbed 20 rebounds in a phenomenal effort to lead Holy Trinity. Selah McGrew pulled down 13 rebounds, and Lilly Cooler grabbed 10, but the Mighty Lions couldn’t muster much at the offensive end.

BA (14-4, 5-1) hosts region frontrunner Hilton Head Christian Academy on Tuesday. Holy Trinity (10-5, 0-5) hosts Hilton Head Prep on Tuesday.
