Haidyn Hull, a senior on the Grinnell Lady Tiger’s Basketball team, has reached the 1,000-point elite scoring club in her prep career.
The milestone came in a 64-52 win at home against Bondurant Farrar on Jan. 26.
“It was an exciting moment for her and our family watching her achieve this,” said Haidyn’s mom, Melissa. “We couldn’t be happier for her.”
“She’s a hard worker and has been very dedicated over the years to accomplish this milestone,” added Melissa. “It’s also cool that she gets to join her brother Jake, a GHS 1000-point club member (2020).”
Haidyn said she is very grateful for all the support over the years from her past and present teammates, coaches and her family, especially her Mom, Dad and the Grinnell community.
“They have helped me hit this goal; I couldn’t have done it without them believing in me and giving me the opportunity to achieve it,” said Haidyn. “It means a lot to me it is and a moment I will never forget or take for granted.”
“Haidyn has put a ton of time into basketball since she was very young travelling all over to play hoops,” said Grinnell Girls Basketball Head Coach Trent Edsen. “She has been an instrumental part of our program the last four years. She joins a select few who have gone through the Grinnell program and finished with 1,000 points. She has a chance to finish as the second all-time leading scorer in Grinnell history behind Sienna Durr. I am very proud of her.”
