Abrameit joins Randle in 1,000-point club, Marion girls rout Mustangs
(Nixon) – Tuesday night, Marion point guard Madelyn Abrameit joined fellow senior Brianna Randle as the second Bulldog this season to pass the 1,000-point milestone in her varsity basketball career.

Abrameit’s 19 points sparked the Bulldogs to 57-20 road blowout of Nixon-Smiley in District 27-3A, lifting Marion to a 5-1 district record and a 16-6 overall mark.

Randle, who scored her 1,000th career point during the Fredericksburg Tournament in December, added 14 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists to the Marion cause against the Mustangs.

Samantha Hopper chipped in with 13 points. She and Madison Batey each collected eight rebounds and five steals. Batey scored five points, Becca Svochak totaled four points and five steals, and Lizzie Abrameit recorded two points and five rebounds.

Marion led 11-4 at the end of the first quarter, 29-9 at halftime, and 43-12 heading into the fourth quarter.

The Bulldogs are part of a three-way tie for first place in District 27-3A with Yoakum and Schulenburg, both of whom also have 5-1 district records. Hallettsville, the team that handed Marion its only district loss, is in fourth place at 4-2.

Marion looks to gain a leg up on Schulenburg in the standings this Friday when the teams square off in Marion at 6:15 p.m. The Shorthorns, 22-6 overall, are ranked 10th in the TGCA’s latest 3A state poll.
