By Mike Monahan

ARCOLA – History was made on January 24 at 8 p.m. as Arcola junior Kacie Sisk became the 10th person in the Arcola girls basketball program to reach 1,000 points in her career. The milestone was achieved in a 51-44 non-conference loss to Arthur Christian, who improved to 20-3.

The Lady Riders inched closer to its second straight 20 plus winning season with Lincoln Prairie Conference wins over Blue Ridge (66-22) on January 25 at Farmer City and Villa Grove (60-17) on Saturday. Arcola took a 19-5 overall record and a 7-1 mark in the conference, good for second place.

According to Roberts, Sisk needed eight more points prior to the Arthur Christian game. Sisk struggled early going 1-for-5 in the first 9:59. However, she finished the half going 3-of-4, including the 999 and 1,000 point against the Conquering Riders defense with 10.3 seconds remaining in the half.
