Park girls basketball: Lamberty an all-star
Park senior guard Sydney Lamberty continues to join rare air.
Lamberty, Park’s all-time leading scorer, was selected as one of only 40 players from across the state to take part in the 2014 Minnesota Girls Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Series, to be held April 25-26 at Carleton College in Northfield.
Lamberty averaged 21.7 points per game this past season for Park, leading the Wolfpack to a third-straight Section 3AAA championship game.
The All-Star Series is for seniors only. Next fall Lamberty will attend Creighton University in Nebraska where she’ll play Division 1 basketball for the Bluejays.
Lamberty, who has played on the Wolfpack varsity team since eighth grade, broke Park’s all-time leading scoring mark back in early December and holds the new record of 2,298 total points.
Lamberty has shot over 50 percent from the field for her high school career, along with shooting over 33 percent from behind the 3-point line and 71 percent from the free-throw line.
The 2014 All-Star Series games will be played at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at Carleton College’s West Gym. Tickets are good for both games of the series and can be purchased at the door for $10 per adult, free for children and students under age 18.
