Hildebrand sets Martin scoring record

For nearly three decades, Julie (Davis) Kubiak held the career scoring record for the Martin girls’ basketball program.
As of Friday, Feb. 5, there’s a new name atop that list.
Jazmin Hildebrand scored 26 points in the Clippers’ 48-13 thrashing of Eau Claire, giving her the most career points in school history at 1,122.
Kubiak finished with 1,118 career points.
“I’m just very excited for her,” Martin coach Doug MacVean said. “She was very happy to break the record.”
And she’s likely not done reaching milestones.
With her 17 rebounds against Eau Claire, Hildebrand brought her career total in that category to 985. That means she should soon be topping the 1,000-rebound plateau.
“That’s something that’s only been done by 21 other girls in the state’s history,” MacVean said.
The excitement Hildebrand provided with her record-setting performance helped make up for a game that was over almost as soon as it started.
Martin jumped out to an 11-0 lead after one quarter before going up 24-2 at halftime and 37-10 after three quarters.
Briana Balder added five points, with Pam Heijerman, Karlee Curry and Susan Weber chipping in four each.
