Mustang Milestone Leaves Lasting Mark


Czerwinski, Mark J, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


CLIFTON -- Kelly Douglass' game face Saturday morning was a big smile.

She put it on during pregame warm-ups and still was wearing it after the game as she mingled in the stands with friends and family. It was a smile that spoke volumes, telling a story of happiness, excitement and relief that has been almost four years in the making.

It was, after all, the smile of someone who just left a lasting mark on the Clifton girls basketball program.

"I've been waiting a really long time to do this," Douglass said after becoming just the second player in program history to score 1,000 career points during the Mustangs' 70-16 Big North Liberty Division victory over Passaic.

"All I could think was, 'It's finally over,' " Douglass said. "No more stress."

Douglass was expecting to receive a bouquet of flowers as play was stopped, but the Mustangs weren't going to let this moment pass without a little more pomp and circumstance.

Her teammates broke out a congratulatory banner complete with photos, and Douglass was presented with a bronze basketball by Dori Breen, who became Clifton's first 1,000-point girls scorer in 1985.

"Kelly has been our go-to player for the last few years," Clifton coach Craig Alfano said. "She made a tremendous contribution freshman year, and we all knew she'd be a four-year starter, and we knew she's score 1,000 points at some point."

The 5-foot-11 Douglass finished with a season-high 27 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. She's averaging 19.5 points through six games for the Mustangs (4-2), and is now 169 points shy of tying Breen's mark as the program's all-time leading scorer. …
