Milestones In Reach For Derek Jay
St. Marys senior Derek Jay has a chance to make more history in the St. Marys Roughriders boys basketball program in Western Buckeye League opener and the Roughriders’ home opener against Van Wert.
The 6-foot-3 senior moved into eighth place all-time in points in non-conference win against New Bremen. Jay passed Troy Crouch (MHS ’82 and Shawnee State basketball alum) with 946 points.
Jay enters just five points behind John Kuenzel (MHS ’56 and Air Force football and baseball alum) for seventh place all-time in points in program history.
Currently, Jay is 17 points behind sixth place scorer Dean Cook (MHS ’51 and Ohio State basketball and football alum) and 54 points from becoming the fifth member of the St. Marys boys basketball program’s 1,000-point club, joining Mark Ashman, 1,194 (MHS ’96 and University of Dayton basketball Hall of Famer), Damon Goodwin, 1,190 (MHS ’82 and University of Dayton basketball Hall of Famer), Garet Fledderjohann, 1,111 (MHS ’13 ) and Adam Johns, 1,068 (MHS ’07 and Capital basketball alum).
Also a mark that could be broken is the number of 3-pointers made. Jay needs five 3-pointer to tie and six to break the school record for career 3-point field goals made (155) held by Garet Fledderjohann (MHS ’13 ).
