Another impressive milestone has been hit by one of Cinnaminson High Schools’ athletes on Tuesday when senior Fiona Flynn hit her 1,000th point in a 50-47 double overtime loss against Pemberton.  Fiona is just the fifth woman in Cinnaminson High School history to achieve that feat, joining recent CHS alumnae Marisa DiLeo (2016) and Najha Treadwell (2014) in accomplishing this amazing career mark.

Fiona has been a four-year varsity starter for Cinnaminson High School’s girls’ basketball team and helped lead them to sectional finals appearance. When she was looking back her favorite game, she thought of a game that was decided by a last second buzzer beater.

“Sophomore year, we played Bordentown and it was a close game throughout all four quarters and the last play of the game, Marisa DiLeo tried to do a drive and she lost the ball, she dove on the ground and chucked it up and Anne caught it and layed it in at the buzzer.I think that was my favorite because we all played so well, and we had to fight the entire time to get the win,” Fiona said.

Prior to Fiona scoring her 1000th point, according to NJ.com, she has been averaging 15.9 points per game this season. As a freshman, she reeled in 113 points, during her sophomore year, she scored 246 points, and last year, she racked up a total of 430 points as a junior.

Flynn was actually very surprised she would reach 1,000 points, and was very nervous about making the jump from middle school to high school.

“It’s kind of crazy when I think about it because when I went into high school I was so scared to play basketball and I didn’t think that I would play, and I was really intimidated. I think by the start of my junior year, I realized that it was possible for me to reach that and then I started looking back at how far I have come, but it is just weird to think about that all of this has built up and I have never really realized it until right now,” Fiona said.

Fiona plans to continue her education at Haverford College, a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania that boasts outstanding academics and equally outstanding sports teams.  There, she will be play women’s basketball and women’s track and field. Haverford College is in the Centennial Conference where she will playing teams such as: Muhlenberg, Gettysburg, Johns Hopkins, McDaniel, Dickinson Ursinus, and many other competitive teams.

Flynn is personally proud of how far her team has come and that so many underclassmen have filled in the roles of previous seniors last season.

“Since we only have two seniors this year, we had to have a lot of underclassmen step up and I am really proud of the role that they are taking on. Especially with Maddie Ogden and Maddie Parrish being two captains this year, but I think that we all treat each other with so much respect and I think that we are all so close as a team that although so many seniors have graduated that we didn’t take that much of hit,” Fiona said.
