Decatur’s Jerron Smith became Decatur’s all-time, regular-season leading scorer last week, surpassing Marcus Tibbs’ four-year (2005-08) total of 1,223. He previously passed Quincy Wilder’s three-year (1994-96) total of 1,108.
Smith, a 6-foot-2 guard who will play at Portland State next season, set the mark by scoring 21 points during a win over Peninsula on Tuesday. He then added to it with 29 points in Decatur’s 74-54 win over Bonney Lake on Friday. He also pulled down 10 rebounds.
With nine more games left in the regular season, Smith, who is averaging 28.2 points per game, has plenty of time to add to his current total of 1,261. He has scored a total of 310 points so far this season.
Wilder still has the highest one-year total for Decatur with 514 points in 1996, Niko Nunogawa had 492 points in 2001, Roberto Bergeson had 474 in 1994 and Smith had 445 last year as a junior.
