SOUTH WAYNE - If Black Hawk senior Kim Wellnitz was considering a career in politics down the road, she gained experience Monday in handling a crowd chanting her name on a big stage.For Wellnitz, Black Hawk's 56-41 non-conference win over Potosi Monday night was revenge and a milestone rolled into one. Wellnitz made 1 of 2 free throws late in the fourth quarter as Warriors fans were chanting her name. With the free throw she made, Wellnitz scored her 1,000th point. Wellnitz scored 25 points and had 10 rebounds in the game. "At first I never imagined it," Wellnitz said, who became the second straight Black Hawk player to reach the 1,000-point plateau as she joined Paige Butler who achieved that feat last year at Juda. "I just play game by game and try to help my team by making some baskets. I have to thank all my previous teams I played with. It shows a lot for our basketball program and where we have come from over the years."
