Taniya Hanner from the Lady Lions Basketball team has had a wonderful start to her senior year. After signing her official National Letter of Intent to play collegiate basketball at the Division I level at University of Albany, Taniya has helped lead the RC Girls team to some big victories already this season. Most recently, on Tuesday, January 15, Hanner grabbed a rebound and scored the putback in the team’s league matchup against Westfield. This basket marked Taniya’s 1000th career high school point for the RC Lady Lions, a mark that has only been achieved by 4 other RC Girls Basketball players to date. Since the scoring milestone was done on the road, the school and team will be honoring Taniya with a pregame ceremony prior to the team’s next home game, which is currently set for Feb 2 vs Notre Dame High School as part of the annual Richel Memorial Hoopfest hosted at RC. Tip Off is 12 pm, and the ceremony will begin prior to the starting lineups.
You can relive Taniya reaching the milestone in the video below. Congratulations Taniya Hanner!!
