WEST MILFORD, N.J. — A recent milestone layup by West Milford varsity basketball player Brielle Mulvihill proved that some baskets count for more than a couple of points.

Mulvihill became the seventh player in school history to score 1,000 points as a Highlander during a tournament in Butler.

The senior guard stole the ball and was fouled on the shot, creating a memorable moment.

"It was a big accomplishment, big achievement," Mulvihill told Daily Voice. "It was kind of a relief in a sense, because I didn't have to stress out about it anymore."

Mulvihill started for the varsity team all four years of her high school career. She attributed her hard work before coming to high school as a reason for her success, plus the help of her teammates.

Her coach, Ray LaCroix, said it was an exciting moment to see Mulvihill reach 1,000 points. She was the first player to do so in his 15 years as coach.

"Brielle offensively is just a really versatile player," LaCroix said. "She's able to play inside and outside. She's a scorer. That's a tough thing to teach."

Mulvihill said she hasn't decided on a college for next year yet, but has been in talks with coaches about playing basketball at the next level.
