Leverette scored her 1,000th career point while wearing the Purple and Gold. She, along with teammate Davie Barnes, led the Viqueens to the impressive non-district showdown victory in which every single Viqueen that dressed found points and contributed to the win.
The Viqueens started hot, and only heated up as the game progressed. They raced out to a 23-6 lead after the initial eight minutes, and tacked on another 21 in the second frame to hold a 44-13 advantage heading to the locker room.
With the game blown wide open, the Viqueens still managed another 28 points in the second half.
When the dust settled from the onslaught, the Viqueens saw all 12 members connect on shots to help secure the win.
And while it was a team win, the night will forever be etched in the mind of Leverette, who secured herself as part of Community High School history on Saturday night.
