As a huge crowd turned out for the first home varsity game of the season, junior forward Nathan Stacy broke six school records during the win of 76-75 over the Gardner Edgerton Trailblazers.

The records broken include scoring (37), rebounding (20), most shots attempted, most shots made, most two-point shots attempted and most two-point shots made.

Stacy is excited about his accomplishment, but he keeps his sights focused on what matters most for the team.

“I’m proud to break all the records,” Stacy said. “But the most important thing is that we won the game.”

Stacy broke guard 2006 graduate Jack Johnson’s record of 31 points in a game by 6.

Now a social studies teacher and assistant coach, Johnson was proud of Stacy for breaking his record.

“I’m really happy for him, he’s worked really hard and deserved it,” Johnson said.

Stacy’s teammate, junior forward Austin Moylan, shares his gratitude for Stacy’s performance at the game.

“I’m glad to have him as my teammate,” Moylan said. “We couldn’t have done it without him, not at all, hell no.”

Stacy said he looks forward to another winning performance by playing even better in the next game.

“I’m going to keep doing the same stuff I have been,” Stacy said. “I’m just going to keep working hard, and from that, we will keep getting victories.”

The next varsity game will be at home on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. against Bonner Springs High School.
