St. Bede sophomore Paul Hart entered the Feb. 21 game vs. Hall needing seven points to reach 1,000 for his career. He got 45.

Hart added 47 points in two regional games, pushing his career total to 1,082 career points (796 this year) and ranks No. 9 all-time. He is the 11th 1,000-point scorer in school history.

Hall junior guard Trez Rybarczk needed nine points Tuesday night in the Red Devils’ regional opener. He got 23 to become the 11th century scorer in school history. Rybarczyk added 25 more the next night, raising his total to 1,039, passing Ken Meek (1,017) at No. 10.

They are the latest two members of the Bureau County 1,000-point club. By my research, there are 157 in all, 127 for the boys and 30 for the girls.

Hart's sister, Hanah, went over the 1,000-point mark earlier in the season. She finished with 1,434 career points, second all-time for Hall girls and third overall.

The list also includes father-daughter duos in Ohio’s Jeremy and Lexi Loftus and Walnut’s Bill and Tammy Lind, father-son duos like DePue’s Tom and Luke Dobrich, grandfather/grandson duos in Ohio’s Bill Anderson and Lance Harris and Dick Kaufman (Sheffield) and Parker Neuhalfen (BV), brother combinations like the Suarezes and Talbots from DePue, the Davises from Manlius/Bureau Valley and the Prusators from Tiskilwa, and another brother-sister like Kale and Saige Barnett of Bureau Valley.

Two player, St. Bede’s Jim Story (’95) and La- Moille’s Josh Gross (’16) hit 1,000 exactly.

DePue heads the list with a whopping 20 1,000-point scorers with Ron Zagar (1953-56), the all-time leading scorer in Bureau County atop the list with 2,514 career points. Ohio is next with 15 boys (16 total), and Hall has 15 (11 boys/4 girls).

Sadly, we just lost a member of the 1,000 point club, Roger Weller, the all-time leading scorer at LaMoille, who passed away Jan. 26.
