Hinen, Benedict hit milestones for Col. City

February 5, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City's boys basketball program hasn't had a player pass 1,000 career points since 1976, when Brent Johnson graduated with 1,074.

The 2013 Eagles' team had its second player pass the milestone, as Derek Hinen scored 12 points against Norwell to set his all-time scoring at 1,005.

His teammate, Drew Benedict, passed the mark earlier this season, in the team's third game of the season against Northfield.

"I'm sure there's not a whole lot of teams that have two players with more than 1,000 points," Hinen said.
