A little bit of history was made over the weekend at one of the Penn State Nittany Lions’ sister campuses as Penn State Worthington-Scranton women’s basketball team senior, Jessica Segilia, scored the 1,000th point in her illustrious career on the campus.
The reigning Greater Scranton Penn State Chapter Female Athlete of the Year scored the historical basket in a game on Saturday against Penn State-Schuylkill.
Throughout the entirety of her career on the Penn State Worthington Scranton campus, Segilia has been one of the most dominant forces on the basketball court that the conference has ever seen, and this season is no different.
In the 2013-14 women’s college basketball season, Segilia leads the conference in points per game and has herself ranked in the top 5 in three-point percentage and assists as well.
After the performance, Segilia expressed admiration for her teammates in helping her reach this milestone, showing the selfless attribute that ultimately makes her such a success on the hardwood.
“I am excited that my team is playing our best basketball at the right time of the year and we are striving for another shot at the playoffs,” Jessica says. Jessica said she considers her 1000th point not a personal victory but a team victory.
From the entire Penn State family, we’d all like to wish Segilia a sincere congratulations on this accomplishment.
