Rusk's DaMaya Hart joins 1000-point club

Feb. 7—RUSK — DaMaya Hart, a junior at Rusk High School, recorded her 1000th-career point in Tuesday's season finale against Bullard.

Hart reached the lofty mark by scoring on a lay up in the first quarter.

Hart was the District Newcomer of the Year in 2022 and was picked for the All-18-4A team as a first team choice last year.

She is also a member of the Lady Eagle track and field team, where she has qualified for the area and state meets for each of the past two seasons.

A young flock of Lady Eagles — the team has only one senior, and there are a pair of freshmen on the roster — ended the year with an 8-20 overall record.

Rusk girl's coordinator Corinna Ford reported that the team showed improvement as the season unfolded and that the Lady Eagles lost a handful of games by single digits.
