The Atlantic County Institute of Technology’s girls basketball team beat Bridgeton 55-35 on Wednesday.

The Red Hawks improved to 16-5.

ACIT senior Kayla Sykes finished with 13 points, breaking the all-time career points record previously set by Yasmeen Nelson in 2015.

“I didn’t really tell her (she broke the record) until after the game,” ACIT coach Jason VanderRyk said of his senior. “She’s a humble kid and just gave me a smile.”

“I don’t think it could’ve happened to a better person,” the coach added.

Sykes currently sits at 1,198 career points, five points ahead of the previous record. She has at least five games left in her career.

Grace Speer had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Atlantic Tech. Jakyra Williams had 12 points and eight rebounds. Julianna Montero had eight points, and Cea’anai Jackson had six.
