After reaching one milestone earlier this season, Taylor Rooks added another to her resume at the end of last month.
The forward grabbed her 1,000th career rebound during Gill St. Bernard's 66-69 victory against Rancocas Valley on Jan. 25. The Stanford-bound senior now stands at 1,087 career rebounds.
Rooks entered that game against Rancocas Valley one rebound shy of 1,000, and she finished with 15 in the victory. The win helped propel Gill St. Bernard's to No. 2 in The Star-Ledger Top 20, and the team remains at that ranking with a 17-2 record.
Rooks, the reigning Star-Ledger State Player of the Year, has once again put together a strong season. She leads the team at 24.6 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.
Earlier this season, she surpassed the 2,000 point mark.
