Girls basketball roundup: Middle Township's Lauryn Fields scores 1,000th point on halfcourt shot

Video

Middle Township High School point guard Lauryn Fields is known as one of the Cape-Atlantic League's best perimeter shooters.

Fields scored her milestone 1,000th career point on a shot from way beyond the arc. The junior hit a halfcourt shot as the halftime buzzer sounded in the Panthers' 47-27 win over host Hammonton on Thursday.

"It looked good as soon as it left my hands," Fields said. "There was only a few seconds left, so I just dribbled up and shot it and it was good. I did it once already this year, so I thought, why not try it again?"

Fields, who needed 11 points to hit the mark, sank a similar shot in a game against Lenape in January. She finished with 14 points and has 1,003 total in her high school career.

Fields transferred to Middle last year from Cape May Tech, where she averaged 15.6 points as a freshman. With a 15.8 average this season, she is the leading scorer for the Panthers, No. 10 in The Press Elite 11.

"It feels really good. I'm proud. I'm happy. I wouldn't have been able to do it without God, my family, my coaches, my teammates and my friends. I've got a great support system," Fields said.

Lauren Legler led Middle with 16 points. Paige Mortellite scored seven for Hammonton.
