A pair of recent additions to girls' basketball's 1,000-point club don't play in the same conference, let alone on the same team, but they do share one common thread.

The most recent player to achieve that career milestone, Galva's 5-foot-10 senior forward Alex Strom, is coached by Rick Cline. Cline also happens to reside in Orion, the hometown of another 2012-13 entry to the 1,000-point ledger — the Chargers' 6-1 senior center Cassidy Clark.

What's more, Cline does get to coach Clark, but on the soccer pitch rather than the basketball court. Last spring, Clark enjoyed a strong season in her first year as the starting goalkeeper for the Orion-Sherrard co-op program.
