Brandner closing in on milestone

Heathwood Hall senior Arayeal Brandner needs just one point on Friday when the Highlanders host St. Joseph’s in a SCISA Region 2-3A girls basketball game to reach 1,000 points in her career.

Brandner scored just six points in Heathwood’s 40-33 loss at Hammond on Tuesday, but is still averaging a double-double on the season. The Highlanders have lost three of their last four region games after getting off to a 3-0 start in conference play.
