BOYERTOWN — Back when Kaitlyn Eisenhard was just a seventh-grader, Jason Bieber could envision something special.
Bieber was her math teacher at the time, and five years later Eisenhard has put up some of the most impressive numbers in Boyertown girls basketball history.
Tuesday night, the 6-foot-1 senior center became just the fifth player in program history to surpass the 1,000-point career mark, scoring 16 as the Bears defeated visiting Owen J. Roberts, 55-37, in their Pioneer Athletic Conference opener.
“I feel very honored to be able to accomplish it,” said Eisenhard, the first Boyertown girls player to reach the milestone since Keri Suydam did it in the 1997-98 season. “It wouldn’t have been possible without all of my teammates from my freshman year all the way to my senior year.”
A four-year starter, Eisenhard (now with 1,009 career points) joins Wanda Moyer (1,373), Suydam (1,259), Julie Reidenauer (1,062) and Kristin Ehst (1,011) in the Bears’ 1,000-point club.
“She has so much heart and determination,” said senior teammate Kaitlyn DeHaven, who scored a game-high 17 points as the Bears improved to 3-0 overall. “Every time she steps on the floor, you can tell she loves it."
