Congratulations to Walla Walla High School senior varsity boys basketball player Diego Jaques for topping the 1000 points milestone in his career at Walla Walla High School. His point tally currently sits at 1009 points overall and 504 for the season. Jaques is in select company with this accomplishment, joining outstanding graduates Michael Cornia, Gary Winston, Michael Weisner and Kyle Bankhead in recent memory.
"We are very proud of Diego and this accomplishment,” said Coach Adam Berg. “He has worked extremely hard and deserves recognition for this achievement. Scoring 1000 points in a career is a rare feat and doing it with one season shortened due to COVID is even more impressive. Diego has shown what hard work and dedication can do for a player and his impact on our program will last for years moving forward."
The boys basketball team stayed alive in the District 8 3A tournament with an 84-63 victory over North Central High School. The Blue Devils face Mead High School Thursday at 7 p.m. at East Valley High School.
