It was a bittersweet night for Allen County-Scottsville junior guard Morgan Rich, who broke the program’s all-time scoring record but suffered an injury in the process.
Rich left the Lady Patriots’ 60-46 win at Monroe County in the second half with a right knee injury, according to her mother, Michelle Rich.
The extent of the injury isn’t yet known, but the 5-foot-11-inch guard is scheduled to visit the doctor at 9 a.m. Saturday, said Michelle Rich, who asked to pass along that their family appreciates everyone’s thoughts and prayers.
“Knowing that so many people are praying for me is the best feeling in the world… ” Morgan Rich posted on her personal Twitter account Friday night. “I’ve never really noticed how many people cared. I’ll be fine! Just send some prayers up cause I know this is in Gods hands. Thank you all so much. It means SO MUCH to me!”
Rich left the game with 19 first-half points, which broke Stacy Felchner’s all-time career scoring record at ACS. Rich has 1,754 career points and played the 120th game of her career.
The Lady Patriots improved to 22-2 overall and 6-0 in District 15 with the win.
Rich was averaging 20.5 points per game for ACS coming into Friday’s contest. She’s being recruited by a host of schools, including Louisville, Western Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Middle Tennessee.
