Burton Breaks Scoring Record

Girls Basketball players and fans witnessed a great event last Saturday (January 6). Veronica Burton broke the Newton South all-time scoring record held for over 30 years by Katrina Antonellis, a PE teacher at Brown Middle School. Katrina was at hand when Veronica scored her 1,436th career point. Both athletes were honored at mid-court, receiving flowers and the support of family, friends, and fans. Veronica was nominated to the McDonald’s All-American Basketball High School team by Coach Rogers. Congratulations, Veronica!
