Jenny Kunkel scores 1000th career point

With Kimball holding a slight lead early in the second quarter against St. John's Prep, Jenny Kunkel spotted up for a three pointer and drained it giving Jenny her second three pointer of the game and her 1000 career point. Kunkel, a 5'6" senior guard for the Kimball Cubs became the fifth player in Kimball girls' basketball history to score 1000 career points. Tammy Kuechle and Melanie Marquardt, Kunkel teammates, were the last to do so on Jan. 16, 2003 and Jan. 10, 2003 respectively. Jenny now ranks fifth in career points with 1048 (through all games) behind Heidi Schwichtenberg 1,065, Melanie Marquardt 1,161, Tammy Kuechle 1,203, and Jane Konz 1,269 career points. Jenny Kunkel is a streaky shooter, when she is on her game she is capable of putting up big scoring numbers and can carry a team to victory. Jenny spends countless hours perfecting her shot, when she doesn't feel she had been shooting the ball well you can bet Jenny is in the gym trying to fix the problem. Jenny can finish off almost any drive in any amount of traffic, Jenny also has a great pull up jumper which I would like to see her use more of. Jenny is a very scrappy, aggressive player, she plays great on the ball defense and forces opposing guards to turnovers with her defense. Jenny is also versatile. As a freshman she was our point guard, when she was a sophomore she made an easy transition to shooting guard and has never looked back, she is capable of playing four positions on the floor if needed. I am extremely proud of what Jenny has been able to accomplish in her basketball career and can't wait to see her play at the next level. Congratulations again Jenny, I know there are many people, including myself, who are proud of everything you have accomplished individually and for your team. Keep working hard, we still have more goals to accomplish.
