When North Surry took the court earlier this year, they had a group of three outstanding seniors that each played on the Varsity team since their freshman seasons. Mason Hawks, Carter Phillips and Kendal Tucker have all been staples in the North Surry lineup since their first year on campus.
Just last Friday, the trio completed a quite impressive accomplishment as all three crossed the 1,000 career point mark, all in the same season.

He has tallied 454 points to date this year, second on the team, for a total of 1,316 points. The senoir has committed to continue his basketball career at Lenoir Rhyne after graduation.
Phillips was next to hit the mark, entering his senoir season with 735 points in his career, Phillips scored his 1,000th point in a 25 point performance as North Surry took down East Forsyth 60-59 on December 23. With a team-leading 491 points this year, Phillips sits at 1,226 points on his career and has committed to play at Catawba College when he graduates in May.
Tucker was the final Greyhound to hit the 1,000 point makr, coming into the year with 752 career points. He crossed the 1,000 point mark on January 27 as the Greyhounds knocked off West Stokes 68-63 with a 19 point night. Also a baseball player, Tucker sits at 1,057 career points and has committed to continue his baseball career at Winthrop University after he graduates.
