GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Kent City junior Kenzie Bowers knocked down another milestone on Saturday afternoon at Cornerstone University. Bowers scored her 1,000th career point in the 79-33 win over Kalamazoo Christian.

"It's very exciting," she smiled, "it's something I've always wanted to get since I was a freshman on varsity, my teammates have helped me get here and it's just very exciting."

Bowers scored 31 points, grabbed nine rebounds and also added six steals and assists, nearing a quadruple double.

"I try to do a little bit of everything to help get a win for my team," she added.

Head coach Scott Carlson says Bowers' work ethic has gotten her this far.

"She's worked harder than any player I've ever had," Carlson mentioned, "that hard work has certainly paid off, she's a tremendous player with a great court sense, there's not a more deserving player."
