Maysville senior Julie Guiler enjoyed two great accomplishments Monday.

Even after it took her two cracks to get the first.

Guiler scored her 1,000th career point as Maysville defeated previously unbeaten Trimble 50-37.

"I've played with so many great girls over the years," Guiler said. "And we have great chemistry now. I couldn't have done it with them."

Trimble, ranked fourth in Division IV, scored only 22 points the final three quarters after putting 15 on the scoreboard in the first quarter. Guiler spearheaded the Panthers' defense, adding 12 rebounds to her 23 points.

"Julie's a complete team player," said Maysville coach Pat Miller. "I'm sure she'll enjoy this win as much with her teammates as she will with her family."

Guiler needed 13 points entering the game to become the sixth Maysville player to score over 1,000 points. The senior scored 12 points in the first half, then had her first basket of the second half waived off after a foul call.

"I knew I'd get it eventually," Guiler said. "It's just something that I can cherish forever."

The school stopped the game for a moment to honor Guiler. She was presented with a 1,000-point ball/trophy.

Guiler signed a letter of intent to play college basketball at the University of Findlay earlier this season.

Maysville (12-3) returns to action Wednesday night at New Lexington.
