Ulrich entered the game five shy of the milestone and reached it in the first quarter, when she sank a three-pointer with 3:12 to go in the period. The senior guard finished with 18 points to raise her career total to 2,013.
She is the seventh Hudson County girl to reach the 2,000-point mark, and three others from that group played for Liberty Division school Harrison (prior to the formation of the NJIC).
Ulrich, who has committed to play at Division II St. Leo’s University in Florida, has scored 402 points in 17 games for the Patriots (16-1) this season for an average of 23.6.
There are 13 Bergen County girls and five Passaic County girls who have surpassed the milestone – including Saddle River Day’s Michelle Sidor, who got to 3,000 points on Tuesday – giving the Big North and NJIC schools a combined 24 girls with 2,000-plus career points.
