Within just a few weeks, Episcopal Academy basketball players Alex Capitano and Matt Dade reached the career 1,000 point milestone.
Capitano scored his 1,000th career point (he had 22 for the day) against Abraham Lincoln High School Dec. 20 in a 73-58 win.
“Cap is always one of the best shooters in the gym,” said EA boys’ basketball head coach Craig Conlin. “He joins a very elite group of high school basketball players to score 1,000 points. This is a great feat for him and shows the hard work he has put into his scoring. It also is a credit to his team and speaks of their commitment to getting him the ball in the right spots.”
Dade hit the 1,000 point mark Jan. 8 in a 60-56 loss to Penn Charter. Dade scored 35 points in that contest, including 14 field goals. It was only the 14th time (second for Dade), going back to Episcopal Academy’s 1949-50 season, that an EA player scored at least 30 points in Inter-Ac play.”
