WHEATON - When Wheaton Warrenville South coach Rob Kroehnke called timeout after Meghan Waldron scored her 22th point Thursday night, the senior guard was just happy to get a break in the action.

Little did the DePaul recruit know that she had just entered the Tigers' record book.

With a short jumper in the lane with 3:29 left in the third quarter, Waldron became the all-time leading scorer at Wheaton Warrenville South with her 1,893 point. The four-year varsity player would go on to add another basket and finish with a game-high 24 points in the team's 58-33 win over Glenbard East.

"I didn't know how many points I was away," Waldron said. "I knew I was close but I didn't know how many points I needed.

"It wasn't really one of my goals coming into high school. I am really surprised I got the record. But I couldn't do it without my teammates, who give me amazing assists and set great screens and inspire me every day in practice, and I couldn't do it without my coaches, especially Coach Kroehnke, who has given me this opportunity."

Waldron added five steals and five rebounds on both Senior Night and the finale to the regular season. Melinda Franke contributed 15 rebounds and five points and Maggie Dansdill reached double figures with 10 points.
