— Kittatinny Regional High School (Hampton Township, N.J.) defeated Delaware Valley High School (Westfall Township, Pennsylvania) in girls varsity basketball on Friday, December 29 2017. The final score was 51-34. The Milford-Matamoras Rotary Holiday Basketball Tournament championship game took place at Delaware Valley High School.

Senior and team captain Kelly Insalaco was named tournament MVP after leading Kittatinny with 21 points, scoring her 1,000th career point in the process. Teammate Madison Smith scored 11 points. Smith was also named to the All-Tournament team. After the game Insalaco commented on her momentous feat saying "I had a feeling it was coming (1,000 points) but I just wanted to make sure that I was focusing on the team and not myself. So I wanted to just help out the team."

Elizabeth Bobo and Amber Recksiek each scored six points to lead Delaware Valley.

Insalaco accomplished a layup to execute her 1,000th point in the second quarter. The game was briefly stopped so Insalaco could be given the game ball and a bouquet of flowers. Thus far this season she is averaging just over 20 points per game. The four year starter in basketball also plays in soccer and softball for Kittatinny. She began playing basketball in the third grade.
