Cali Konek has scored at an unprecedented pace this season and could be headed for a milestone usually reserved for juniors or seniors.

The Imani Christian freshman is within striking distance of reaching 1,000 points during the regular season.

She has 978 points this season through 21 games, an average of 46.5. That included 58 points Wednesday in a win over Serra Catholic.

The Saints (14-7, 7-4 Section 4-A) play at Winchester Thurston on Thursday to wrap up the regular season. In their first meeting, Konek scored 48 against WT.

She has scored 50 or more points nine times this season.

If she doesn't reach the milestone this week, Konek will have at least one playoff game to accomplish the feat, as the Saints have qualified as Section 4's fourth-place team.

The WPIAL playoffs begin next week.
