Philomath High senior Sage Kramer broke the school record for most points in a game with 51 on Tuesday night in a 76-43 victory over visiting Woodburn.

“It was an impressive night,” PHS coach Ben Silva said about Kramer. “I’m not sure what her shooting percentage was but she was very efficient.”

Kramer finished with 23 field goals and 3 of 3 on free throws. Kramer’s put in 24 points alone in the second to break her own state record for most points in a quarter. And the 36 points she had at halftime ties the state record for most points in the first half.

The previous school record of 47 had been held by Trisha Stevens, a dominant player for the Warriors in the late 1980s who went on to a celebrated collegiate career at Stanford. Stevens scored those 47 points in the 1987 Class AA state championship game against Madras.

The game was actually close early on with Philomath holding just a 19-17 lead heading into the second quarter. Besides the 12 put up by Kramer over the first eight minutes, junior Hailie Couture was also hitting with seven of her 10 points on the evening.

In the second, Kramer took over and the Warriors led 46-22 at halftime.

Aria Kent scored 16 to lead Woodburn (11-7 overall, 4-5 Oregon West).

Philomath (14-2 overall, 8-0 Oregon West) is scheduled to play at home on Thursday against Newport with the tip-off scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
