La Roche junior forward Jenna Cole, a Norwin grad, leads the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference in scoring at 19.1 points per game.

It might be divided among two schools, but a milestone is a milestone to Jenna Cole.

The former Norwin basketball standout scored the 1,000th point of her college career while leading La Roche to a 64-59 win at Medaille.

Cole, a 6-foot junior forward, transferred from Pitt-Greensburg after her freshman season.

She has scored 615 points at La Roche and had 397 at UPG, giving her 1,012 in two-plus years.

Cole hit a buzzer-beating shot just before halftime Saturday and had 13 of her game-high 21 points in the first half.

She has scored 20 or more points in seven games this season for the Redhawks (7-6, 6-1 AMCC).

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
