On Thursday night, the Faith Christian girls basketball team will host the Roanoke Catholic Celtics in a clash of two highly regarded independent schools. In addition to supporting the Warriors as they seek their eighth win of the season, Faith Christian fans will be rooting hard for senior forward Rachel Nymeyer, who currently sits just 20 points shy of 1,000 for her career.
“It will be a big accomplishment for me if it happens,” Nymeyer said of the milestone. “It’s something I’ve been working for since the 9th grade.”
If Nymeyer is unable to reach the 1,000 point mark on Thursday, she’ll have another chance on Saturday against Dayspring Christian.
The team’s leading scorer a year ago, Nymeyer is currently leaning towards continuing her playing career at Rhema Bible College in Oklahoma.
