Kieonna Christmas becomes 10th prep player to post a quintuple-double

Social media was abuzz this week as Kieonna Christmas’ outstanding December game sent shockwaves around the basketball corners of the internet.

The Fonda-Fultonville (New York) High School senior posted an unbelievable stat line: 11 points, 20 rebounds, 11 assists, 10 steals, 10 blocks, according to Penn Live. In doing so, she drove the Braves to a 55-50 win over Notre Dame Bishop Gibbons (Schenectady, N.Y.) in overtime.

According to MaxPreps, Christmas is the 10th prep player to record a line of double-digit numbers in each of those categories. This game was just the 13th time it has happened.

Hall of Famer and former WNBA star Tamika Catchings is the first recorded prep player to do so, according to MaxPreps. In 1997, she recorded a line of 25 points, 18 rebounds, 11 assists, 10 steals and 10 blocks.

Aquillin Hayes, a girls basketball player who graduated in 2011, is recorded to have recorded a quintuple-double three times in high school, while Takiya Webb, Class of 2010, did so twice.

Only three players to do so were boys, and two of them happened last year, according to MaxPreps: Jaydon Awe and Thomas Armbruster both accomplished the feat from Jan. 20-27, 2023.

Overtime posted highlights of Christmas. Based on the jerseys, it looks like some highlights took place against Notre Dame, while others were from another game:

At 6-foot, Christmas is the tallest player listed on the MaxPreps roster. She used that size effectively to get to 10 steals and blocks apiece, the toughest of the five double-digits to attain.

Fonda-Fultonville is 9-13 this season, having bounced back from a four-game losing streak to pick up wins in its last two games. The Braves have a game against 17-5 Mechanicville (N.Y.) on Sunday.
