Savannah Wilson: 1000 Point Club
Savannah Wilson, starting guard at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, recently accomplished an impressive feat by joining the 1,000-point club on January 18th. She did so in great fashion scoring 16 points in an 8-point victory over Wakefield at home. In attendance was Doug Howard, her trainer since 9th grade, and he could not have been more proud. Doug said watching her score her 1000th point was “indescribable”, and it was “One of [his] most proud moments as a trainer”.
Savannah has been training at Evolution since the 4th grade, and according to Doug, is one of the hardest workers he has ever been around. Since her freshman season, she has trained year around even though she attended a high school with an extremely rigorous academic workload. In the offseason she decided not to play AAU, but instead continued to work on her skills with Doug and strength with Stephen Boettke. Her dedication has lead to a tremendous amount of growth and development. Doug stated that all of her hard work has really improved “her ball handling and willingness to attack the basket! She has always been a great shooter, but she has really rounded out her game with the ability to attack the basket even at her size.”
In the end, her hard work has paid off. Before this season she committed to York College, a very successful program traditionally at the top of the Capital Athletic Conference. All of us at Evolution cannot wait to see the great things Savannah will accomplish at the next level.
