MONDAY PREP ROUNDUP: Martin sets single-season scoring record for Newton girls basketball in win; St. Anthony, Altamont girls drop road contests

Feb. 6—NEWTON — Camryn Martin hit a layup in the third quarter that was more memorable to her and the coaching staff than she had thought.

The two-point shot was historical, as Martin became the single-season scoring record holder during Monday's home tilt against Palestine/Hutsonville-Oblong (OPH) at Newton High School. Newton won the game 72-30. Martin had 24 points and now has 459 total and two guaranteed games remaining.

"She's got that instinct," said head coach Brad Harris of the junior guard. "That record has been here since the middle 2000s, so I'm proud of her effort. She's adjusted her game through the years."

Martin also had four rebounds, three assists, and six steals.

Sister Karasyn had 16 points, two assists and four steals. Lilly Kessler had 15 points and 12 rebounds. Elley Bennett had seven points and three assists. Macy Barthelemy had three points and two steals. Claire Probst had three points. Grace Schumacher had two points, and Izzy Meinhart had two points. Emma Nadler also finished with three rebounds and two assists.

Before the game, the team honored its seniors — Kessler, Bennett, Barthelemy, and Nadler.

"I appreciate their hard work and dedication in their four years in the program," Harris said. "They've all contributed at different levels. Elley's been our point guard since her sophomore year. Lilly has slowly adapted, and Macy and Emma have come a long way in the last two years. They had 12 wins on varsity their sophomore year, 16 last year, and they're at 18 this year, so they've definitely shown improvement."

Newton is now 18-10 on the season, with a home game Thursday against St. Anthony before opening postseason play Saturday.
