Friday, January 5 was an action-packed night for both the girls basketball team and members of the community. For the conference game against River Ridge/Scales Mound, the ARC hosted a “Blackout Night” to raise money for the ARC’s mission to purchase and upgrade the current Tri-State Christian school building.
The basketball girls wore their alternate “special occasion” black uniforms, and the gym was a sea of black attire, as the boys basketball team wore their black uniforms in the stands to support the cause. Additionally, there were t-shirts, raffle tickets, a chili dinner, and a silent auction–all proceeds were donated to the ARC.
Besides the successful fundraiser, the Pirates had another thing to cheer about–Sydney Schuler. The senior guard scored her 1,000th career point and received an outpouring of support from her teammates, coaches, family, and friends.
“(Scoring 1,000 points) felt great. It was amazing, but I couldn’t have done it without all the support and help from my teammates. I’m so thankful for everything they’ve done to make this possible for me,” Schuler said. “All my family and friends being there made the night so special.”
Schuler’s fans made signs, shirts, and even fake 1,000 dollar bills with her face printed on them–to show their pride for the three-sport athlete, who also excels in the classroom.
The night only improved for Schuler after she led her team to a close victory against the Lady Cats.
“I’m so glad we won. With me being guarded extremely tight the, my teammates really stepped up and did an incredible job getting me the ball and also scoring points of their own to get the W. It just added to the night’s excitement,” Schuler said.
The game ended with fans rushing to embrace Schuler, who became the fifth highest scorer in girls basketball history. Pictures were taken, and numerous cookie cakes were consumed.
January 5, 2018 will remain in the memories of Schuler and her fans forever, as she accomplished a feat that sets her apart from the rest. The “Blackout” will also be remembered, as the ARC continues to expand and flourish.
