Raegan McCowan breaks Lebanon basketball all-time scoring record
ALEX BOYER • ALEX@LACLEDERECORD.COM
There’s a new all-time leading scorer in Lebanon High School history.
In front of a large crowd on-hand, everyone inside Boswell Auditorium on Thursday night was hoping to witness history as senior Raegan McCowan needed 31 points to surpass Kelsey Winfrey as the all-time leading scorer for the Lady ‘Jackets.
With 4:16 remaining in the game, McCowan received a handoff from teammate Heaven Shockley at the free throw line. The Western Illinois basketball commit took one dribble and jump stopped as she banked in the 2,053rd point of her career from the right block against the Central Bulldogs to extend their lead to 68-33 and break the record. Lebanon would win the game 73-38 as she finished the night 11 of 18 from the field, hauled in six rebounds, and had four assists.
