Drea Brumfield Breaks Bearcat Career Scoring Mark in Win Over White River


Breaking a record that stood for nearly two decades, W.F. West girls standout Drea Brumfield surpassed Bri Thompson’s all-time school scoring record set from 1999-2003 Thursday night in a 51-29 win on the road. 

Brumfield scored a team-high 17 points, and hit the record-breaking shot in the first half on a familiar 3-pointer from the right wing. 

“It’s something that every kid strives for,” Bearcats coach Kyle Karnofski said. “That’s something that goes down in history, she’s put in the time and effort, it’s really special.” 

The senior star now sits at 1,171 career points, 10 more than Thompson’s record, 1,161. Brumfield paced the Bearcats (13-2, 5-1 2A EvCo) offense Thursday, and was the only player in double figures in a defensive-minded game. 

“Our defense runs our offense,” Karnofski said.

W.F. West held the Hornets to 29 points and handed them just their second loss of the season. White River didn’t crack double-digits in any of the four quarters. 

Karnofski also praised Carlie Deskins for playing big minutes off the bench and scoring seven points, Julia Dalan for stuffing multiple layup attempts at the rim, and Olivia Remund for continuing to be a steady presence in the lineup. 

The Bearcats will play Tumwater on the road Wednesday for their next matchup in a rematch of a December loss at the hands of the T-Birds.
