In a February 27th game against Rivers School, senior Stephon Baxter of Worcester, Massachusetts became the seventh male in Marianapolis history to reach 1,000 points in his basketball career.
Baxter has been on the boys’ varsity team for three seasons and averaged 16.4 points per game, 2.8 assists per game, and 1.9 steals per game this past season. He reached the milestone in a NEPSAC Class B quarterfinal win. The team ended the season at the semi-finals with a loss to Canterbury School.
"I am immensely proud of Stephon and what he has accomplished not only this year but throughout his career at Marianapolis,” said boys’ varsity head coach Andrew Vitale. “Stephon has grown exponentially as a student-athlete at Marianapolis and he has positioned himself to have a great career as a collegiate athlete. To score 1,000 points in three seasons is an amazing accomplishment that has not been done by many."
Other male basketball players from Marianapolis to reach 1,000 points in their senior year include Kevin Goudreau '83, Mark St. Amour '92, Fernando Rivera '92, Mark Alexander '06, Kristian Medina '12, and Tyler Burton '19 who achieved it in his junior year.
