Senior Cam Sionko broke the mark by putting up 17 points in a 51-50 win over Hutch-Tech.Sionko only needed one point to reach 1,000. He’s projected to reach 1,200 in his career as a Viking, which would put him at second all-time behind Carlin Hartman (1,513). "He’s our captain, our leader," said Grand Island coach Ron Krysztof. "It’s a very exciting day for our team." Sionko hit two foul throws with 6.7 seconds left to win the game for the Vikings.
