Confetti showered the stands behind Park’s bench as senior Cire Mayfield scored his 1,000 career high school point after driving with his right hand to the basket.

Assistant coach Rob Griffin said he believes this feat is even more impressive because of who Mayfield has played alongside for the last three years.

“A lot of times the 1,000 point mark can sometimes be misunderstood, sometimes you get one good player on a really bad team that reaches that point,” Griffin said. “I think for Cire, he has played with some super good players over his three years of playing varsity here at St. Louis Park, so for him to reach that milestone is huge.”

Senior teammate Dashaun Emerson said for Mayfield the milestone is a nice reward for his effort.

“I am really proud of him, he works hard every single day. It is nice to see a teammate get 1000 points,” Emerson said.

According to Mayfield, reaching the milestone is a reminder of how far he has come but only shows one aspect of his game.

“I guess it is all right. It is a good goal for me, but it just shows that I can score the ball,” Mayfield said.

The Orioles’ next game is at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 at the high school against Bloomington
