Eric Montanez, a senior basketball player at St. Thomas More Academy, scored his 1,000th high school career point Feb. 3 in a game against St. Andrew’s School.
Montanez netted 26 points in the 71-58 victory over St. Andrews. The STMA team is on a 10-game winning streak and has their eyes on the upcoming state tournament where they were quarterfinalists last season. He previously attended Chichester High School in Pennsylvania.
Montanez is looking to play basketball at the next level at a Philadelphia or Wilmington area college. He lives in Newark with his mother and father and four siblings.
