The newest member of the 1,000 career points club in Union County is Linden standout senior Jada Lewis.
Lewis reached the coveted scoring mark in Linden’s girls’ basketball game at home against Scotch Plains Thursday, which was a 43-42 Tigers win in Union County Conference-Watchung Division play.
Linden, sparked by the outstanding efforts of Lewis, began the week 12-8 overall and 8-5 in the Watchung Division.
Linden will be competing in the North 2, Group 4 playoffs once again and before that the Union County Tournament, which is to be seeded Wednesday morning at Roselle Catholic.
Linden head coach Paul Gorski is one of the six coaches on the seeding committee that will construct the tournament.
