Cian Carvalho is all-time Hutchinson leading scorer

Cian Carvalho became the Hutchinson Community College all-time leading women’s

basketball scorer earlier this week.

Carvalho is a former Kapa’a High

School standout.

The Hutchinson Dragons women’s team – from the state of

Kansas – defeated Kansas City 84-53 to earn a trip to the Region 6

quarterfinals.

Carvalho scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the

game.

Carvalho passed Janay Vulgamore on the all-time list. She scored her

1,000th point on a free throw with 12:12 left in the first half. She finished

the night with 1,017 career points.

“That’s a great career accomplishment,”

Hutchinson coach Rob Edmisson said. “She has to be considered the best post

player in HCC history.”

Carvalho scored 10 of the Dragons’ first 25

points.

Hutchinson (24-7) was scheduled to meet Independence (24-7) in the

Region 6 quarterfinals yesterday.

“It’ll take everything we’ve got to beat

Independence,” Edmisson said.
