Emily Wolph plays the game hard.

It isn’t always pretty - her drives often end up with her sprawled on the floor and her jump shot, while on the mark most of the time, is unorthodox.

But the Desert Vista senior always seems to find a way to score.

So much so last Friday after she scored her first basket against Basha the game was stopped and she was recognized as the Thunder’s all-time leading scorer.

The Santa Clara recruit now has 1,485 points after surpassing Alexis Welch, who finished her career with 1,445.

“To be the all-time leading scorer is such an honor and to be able to accomplish something of that value means more than I can say,” Wolph said. “It wasn’t done alone.

“I have to give Coach P (former coach Rachel Proudfoot), Coach Jon (current coach J’Ontar Coleman), (assistant) coach (Adria) Boyarsky, Coach C (strength and conditioning coach Doug Christofis), and most importantly, my teammates over these past four years.

“I give them full credit for helping me get to this point because without them I wouldn't have come close.”

Wolph is also making her way up the record books in 3-pointers made (139, 1st), free throws made (256, 1st), steals (263, 3rd) and assists (279, 2nd).

She needs two steals to move into second to pass former teammate Kylie Butler and won't be able to catch Monique Bribiescas for most assists at 445.
