    (MIKE WILLIAMS | THE GRAHAM LEADER) Lady Blues senior Kate Gober was honored by Graham High School principal Joe Gordy and her Lady Blues teammates following their loss in Stephenville. With a 3-pointer in the second quarter, Gober surpassed the 1,000 career point milestone.

Gober has milestone moment in loss at Stephenville

Saturday’s meeting with Stephenville was always going to be a tough task for the Lady Blues. When the teams previously met, the Honeybees won 50-25. Although Saturday’s result was a 54-38 loss in Stephenville, this game had a different feel for multiple reasons.

Senior guard Kate Gober entered the game needing two points to reach the 1,000-point milestone for her varsity career. From the tip, it looked as if that was what the Lady Blues were going for. Gober, while doing what she could to get those last two points, moved the ball around on the court as well.

Points were difficult to come by for the  Lady Blues in the first quarter. They were down 7-0 when senior Rachel Grimsley earned the only first-quarter points with a 2-2 trip to the free-throw line. The Lady Blues trailed 10-2 after the first quarter.

The Honeybees opened the second quarter with an 8-1 run. That one point was a source of drama for Gober and the Lady Blues. Gober earned her opportunity for 1,000 points after getting fouled on a layup attempt. She sat at 999 points after hitting the first shot and missing the second.
