Starkville Academy basketball

Starkville Academy’s Lillee Alpe (11) defends during an earlier game this season.

Lillee Alpe was happy to score her 1,000th career point on Tuesday night.

She was even more pleased it came against a Class 4A, District 2 rival.

Alpe’s all-around game of 12 points, five rebounds and seven assists led the Lady Volunteers to a 60-34 road win over the Heritage Academy Lady Patriots.

“With Heritage being a big rivalry with our schools, it was really good to know we played them,” Alpe said Wednesday about reaching the 1,000-point milestone.
