Two St. Edmund Prep H.S., Sheepshead Bay, varsity basketball players recently eclipsed the 1,000-career-point plateau.

On the boys’ side, junior guard Shemar Latty accomplished the feat on Feb. 13 as part of a career-high 35-pt. performance. He became the seventh male and first junior in school history to reach the mark.

Latty has been a two-time Tablet All-Star and was named to the CHSAA ‘A’ All-League team last season.

She became the eighth female in school history to join the exclusive club. A Tablet All-Star last year, Lauterborn will be attending SUNY Cortland, N.Y.
