Spartan girls win big, Wallis hits 1,000 career points

Jake Ryder

GRUNDY CENTER – For three or four summers in a row, Hailey Wallis completed what's known as the "10,000 shot club," a common avenue for those willing to put in the time to try and approach perfection with their shot on the hardwood.
Wallis, now a senior for Grundy Center girls basketball, admits she doesn't keep track as much anymore.
Not that there's no need, but maybe more that Wallis can sense when she's got her shot.
She knows she had her shot on Friday night.
Wallis scored 29 points for the second consecutive game as the Class 2A No. 1 Spartans steamrolled Gladbrook-Reinbeck, 76-23.
"One of my big focuses in the offseason is just shooting," Wallis said. "Trying to get up as many shots as possible in the offseason and trying to find my stroke, and I think I felt that tonight."
Wallis scored 233 points as a freshman and 358 points in back-to-back seasons as a sophomore and junior. She entered Tuesday's game at East Marshall with 1,022 career points, averaging 24.3 points per game after the first week.
