Of local note: Pinewood teammates nearing a milestone

Klara Astrom scored a career-high 38 points on 12 of 18 shooting, including 8 of 12 from 3-point range, and the nationally-ranked Pinewood girls basketball team topped visiting Priory 74-40 in a West Bay Athletic League contest Tuesday.

Hannah Jump added 24 points, all on 3-pointers, for the Panthers (20-2, 10-0), who have won 63 consecutive WBAL regular-season games.

Astrom, who was also 6 of 7 from the foul line, scored over 30 points in a game for the second time in her career. She netted 31 against Menlo last year.

Pinewood travels to play Menlo (20-2, 9-1) at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The Panthers won the last meeting, 75-36.

Astrom and Jump, who are both headed to Division I schools to play next year, are fourth-year teammates. They are about to reach a milestone together that will likely happen at Menlo. They have scored a combined 2,982 points, already a jaw-dropping number. Scoring 3,000 seems other worldly.
