For the third time this season, a Metcalfe County basketball player has joined the school's elite 1,000th Point Club. Peyton Dial, a junior for the Hornets, reached the milestone during a game against Allen County-Scottsville on March 5, 2021. The Hornets defeated the Patriots 84-46.
Earlier in the season, Lady Hornet senior Macy Welsh scored her 1,000th point during a win over Edmonson County, and Lady Hornet junior Jaycie Harper scored her 1,000th point during the All "A" Classic against Hancock County.
Peyton's mother Rachel Dial (pictured below) reached the same milestone at MCHS in 1997. The pair is the first mother-son duo to join the 1,000 Point Club at Metcalfe County High School.
