HOUSTON – In an entire coaching career, most coaches can count the number of players they've had reach 1,000 points on one hand.

Jeff Hollinger now needs two.

More impressively, Hollinger, who is in his 13th season at St. Agnes, can look down his current roster and count four players that have reached that career landmark – Emily Nelson, Katie Dickerson, Kelly Dickerson and Madison Lucas.

"In a program you may have one or two kids that are going to score a lot of points," Hollinger said. "But never would I have thought I'd have four kids, all the same age, all play varsity all four years end up with 1,000 each. That's extremely rare.

"I don't know if I'll ever see it again."

All four seniors and all four have now eclipsed 1,000 career points – three coming this season alone.

"It's really special because it's the players I've been playing with since freshman year," Nelson said. "The four of us all made it onto varsity our freshman year, so it's nice being here with them."

Prior to Nelson reaching the 1,000-point mark last season against Incarnate Word Academy, Lauren O'Connell was the last to reach it in the 2015-2016 season.

Also in the club during Hollinger's career was Chelsea Bass, who serves as the St. Agnes Junior Varsity Coach.

"No, I thought that was crazy," Nelson said about scoring 1,000 points. "I had known about Coach Bass scoring 2,000 but 1,000 even seemed crazy to me. I was surprised."

With Nelson reaching her mark in her junior season, it allowed the Trinity University commit the chance to help her teammates and best friends reach the career milestone.

"It was so much fun because a part of my game that I enjoy is giving assists," Nelson said. "That was a part of my game I could improve because it's easy to give great passes to the twins when I know they're going to finish."
