HOUSTON – Ask a player if they ever thought they would hit 1,000 or 2,000 career points?

Most of the time the answer is no.

There are a few marks along the way the players, coaches and teams recognize until the player eventually hits that career mark.

In the past few weeks players across the city of Houston have reached career marks.

Allie Byrd – Kingwood Park

Allie Byrd has been a double double machine her entire career at Kingwood Park.

On December 20 against Willis, Byrd surpassed the mark of 2,000 points, becoming the all-time leader in school history in points.

Before Kingwood Park's game on January 25, Byrd was honored with a commemorative basketball. Following that game, Byrd officially had 2,170 points and 1,649 rebounds in her career.

Byrd is committed to play soccer at North Texas.

HOUSTON – It was another banner night for Humble ISD on the pitch.

For the third-straight season Kingwood girls soccer is heading to the Regional Semifinals with a 3-1 victory against Deer Park on Friday. Kingwood hasn't reached the Regional Finals since the 2010 season.

District-mate Atascocita moved on to the Regional Semifinals with a penalty kicks victory over Clear Springs. After full time and overtime, the Lady Eagles won the match 4-3 in penalty kicks. This is only the second time in program history Atascocita has reached the Regional Semifinals. The last trip to the fourth round came in the 2017 season.

Atascocita will face Tompkins at 12:30 p.m. and Cinco Ranch will play Kingwood at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, at Deer Park's Abshier Stadium. The Regional Final between the winners will take place Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Kingwood Park had the best night of all, sending not just its state semifinalist girls soccer team back to the Regional Tournament but also its boys team.
