Records, Justice. Those two words seem to go together at Peebles High School and on Wednesday night, another one bit the dust as Lady Indians junior guard Jacey Justice continued her assault on every girls basketball record at the school. The Lady Indians entertained Western Latham on Jan. 22 and Justice came into the game needing 26 points to eclipse the school’s all-time girls scoring record, which was held by Kim Danner with 1,473 points.

Danner’s record fell at the 2:24 mark of the second quarter when Justice drove and scored on a left-handed layup for her 25th and 26th points of the game, making her the new all-time girls scorer in school history, a mark which likely won’t be broken any time soon. And she’s still only a junior.

I was lucky tonight to have good teammates who helped me out tonight and got me the ball and I appreciate that. “
