Carpenter scores 2000th point in Mt. Everett win over Renaissance

When Mt. Everett senior Gwen Carpenter stepped to the free throw line with 42.5 seconds remaining in the first quarter Tuesday night, it looked like any other trip during her six-year career as an Eagle. And just like she had done so many times before, including when she broke the school scoring record just six weeks prior, she hoisted the ball up­­ and watched it fall through the bottom of the net.

But this time, it was different.

The made shot was Carpenter’s 2,000th career point, one of 28 she scored in her team’s 68-37 victory over the Lee Wildcats, becoming just the second basketball player in the history of Berkshire County to reach that mark. She finished the night at 2,019, putting her 36 away from Sam Herrick’s county record, which she set playing for Lenox in the early 90s.

“It was kind of fitting,” Carpenter said. “I feel like I spend a lot of my time there.”
