Rocky Mount senior forward Dyonna Battle (center) received a commemorative basketball from Rocky Mount girls coach Pam Gainey (background, right) before a game with Hertford County on Jan. 7 to honor her 1,000th career point scored.
She scored that special point in a game at Kinston on Jan. 3 - the fourth female Rocky Mount player ever to top the 1,000-point mark. She joins the late Kim Taylor (RMSH Class of 1983), Danielle Powell ('92) and Latoya Armstrong ('03) on that special list.
Battle is flanked by her parents Donnell and Gail Battle.
