Paynesville's Nietfeld scores over 1,000 points
EDEN VALLEY -- Cory Nietfeld became the first Paynesville basketball player to score 1,000 points before his senior year when the 6-3 junior guard reached the milestone last Saturday in a non-conference game at Eden Valley-Watkins.
Nietfeld scored his 1,000th points on a putback basket in the second half.
The game was stopped and Nietfeld was presented with the game ball, which he took into the stands and gave to his parents.
After scoring 30 points and grabbing 24 rebounds in Paynesville's 88-76 win over Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City, Nietfeld now has 1,035 career points.
He is the ninth Paynesville boy to reach the milestone.
