Thomas passes 1,000

MORENCI — Morenci’s Alex Thomas passed the 1,000 career scoring mark Tuesday in Morenci’s win over Whitmore Lake.

Thomas, a senior, said that reaching the milestone had been a goal of his for four years.

“Every day, I walk through the halls and in the trophy case we have the basketballs with how many points those guys scored,” he said. “I said I wanted my name in that case, too.”

Thomas scored 30 Tuesday, giving him 1,006 for his career. A four-year player, he was on the varsity as a freshman when his brother played. Tuesday, his younger brother, Anthony, was part of the celebration as well.

Thomas took an alley-oop pass from Bladen Mellon to pass the career milestone.
