REACHING A MILESTONE ...Pinewood girls basketball teammates Klara Astrom and Hannah Jump, both of whom will play at NCAA Division I colleges next year, will likely reach a milestone during Friday night's 6:30 p.m. West Bay Athletic League contest at Menlo School. The four-year varsity players have scored a combined 2,982 points over their prep careers, 18 shy of 3,000. In the same game, Jump needs 14 points to reach 1,700 and Astrom needs four to reach 1,300. Both players went a long time to reaching the 3,000-point plateau with big offensive efforts in a 74-40 victory over Priory earlier in the week. Astrom scored a career-high 38 points on 12 of 18 shooting, including 8 of 12 from 3-point range, and Jump, who is headed to Stanford, added 24 points, all on 3-pointers, for the Panthers (20-2, 10-0), who have won 63 consecutive WBAL regular-season games. The Yale-bound 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.
