senior Brooke Gerstman recently passed an impressive milestone as she scored her 1000th point, breaking the previous school record of 1076 points, held by Caroline Kaufman since 1989.
In a Derek Jeter moment, Brooke scored her 1000th basket with a three-pointer, bringing the crowd to its feet. A few games later, she sunk a total of seven three-pointers, establishing a new school record for the most three-point shots in one game.
Gerstman, who Newsday called “arguably the best public school basketball player in Nassau,” was named a second team All-Long Island player in her junior year.
Gerstman is also a standout off the court. An honor roll student, she is a member of the National Honor Society, the Leadership Club, Athletes Creating Excellence, and the Spanish Club. She also tutors and volunteers at a children’s basketball program.
