SHERBURNE - Lily Berg has been an integral part of the Sherburne-Earlville girls’ varsity basketball team for many years. This year she achieved a milestone that few athletes see.
Playing in her home tournament on Saturday, December 12, Berg reached the 1,000 point mark, catapulting her into the record books with just a few others. Berg is this week’s athlete of the week not only based on her grand achievement, but because of her all around play this season.
Berg, a senior at Sherburne-Earlville, is having one of the best seasons of her career. Averaging a double double per game with 16 points and 12 rebounds, she is consistantely out playing almost everybody on the court. “Lily’s not just a one denominational player,” said Berg’s coach at S-E Karen Mulligan. “She’s just as good of a player on defense as she is on offense.”
