Boston High School: Carly O'Connell

Algonquin's O'Connell gets 500th career point

May, 23, 2012
Algonquin Regional senior attack Carly O'Connell netted her 500th career point this afternoon, in the Tomahawks' thrilling 12-11 double-overtime win over archrival Westborough.

O'Connell, a University of Oregon signee, sat at 499 points headed into today, and joins an exclusive club of 500-point scorers in Massachusetts that includes Westwood's Kelly Rich and Wellesley's Blake Dietrick. Current Notre Dame of Hingham head coach Meredith Frank is the state's all-time leader in points with 552 (306 goals, 242 assists) doing so over four seasons at Westwood High (2002-05).

Coming into the season, the Tomahawks had not beaten their archrivals since May of 2008, going 0-9 against the Rangers since that moment. With today's win, they sweep the season series, move to 17-1 on the season, and will likely grab the No. 1 overall seed in Division 1 Central when brackets are unveiled for the MIAA tournament.
