Zaccagnini becomes Holy Cross girls’ all-time leading scorer

To say Holy Cross girls’ basketball senior star Mya Zaccagnini has had a spectacular career could be putting it too simply.

Zaccagnini reached an incredible career milestone Friday night when she passed Kay Odenwaelder to become the all-time leading scorer in the history of Holy Cross girls’ basketball. Zaccagnini now has 1,405 points after her 29-point night in her team’s 72-33 win over Crosby in the Timothy J. McDonald Gymnasium. Odenwaelder scored 1,390 points in her career.

Congratulations came in from all over social media for Zaccagnini. One comment stood above the rest to this writer.

“This is beyond a tremendous accomplishment. I also think it should be noted that she did this missing >15 games due to COVID shutdown,” Tracy Stanco wrote on Facebook in response to a post from Mya’s mother Kris. “Rock on with your bad self Mya 💪🏾”

Indeed, what Zaccagnini has accomplished so far is amazing, especially given the opportunities missed due to COVID, but I’ll end this post with a quote tweet from Holy Cross assistant principal Kate Xeller on a post from the girls’ basketball team’s account.

“YES Mya!!! Congratulations – you’re not done though!!”

There are four regular season games left, plus a yet to be determined amount of postseason contests. No, she is not done.
