Maddy Sulka earned her way to being the latest area player to go over 1,000-points in her career.

She has the bumps and bruises to prove it.

Sulka, who reached 1,000 points on Feb. 2, does just about everything for the Mountain Pointe girls program and that includes diving for loose balls or falling hard on the court. While her scoring average has increased each year with the Pride since her freshman season, the lasting image I will have after the 5-foot-8 guard graduates is the all-out style she takes pride in every time she steps on the court.

And yet you get the feeling that she feels that she has never done enough. To me that is a trait of a great player. Feeling satisfied is like settling for being good. She wants to be great.

And she has been for the Pride this year as she averages 12.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.4 steals.

All of the junior colleges are interested in Sulka, but she has the makeup of a Division I player and would bring a winner's intangible to any program where she ends up continuing her career.
