Amelia Fjeldstad pushed to the very last game of her Isabella High School basketball career, and by doing so, surpassed 1,500 career points. The senior surpassed the mark earlier in the 2023-2024 season and finished her career closer to 1,750 points.

“It means a lot, and I could not have done it without my team, the support and (head) coach Jared Day pushing me to do my best,” Fjeldstad said about surpassing the milestone.

Day said that Fjeldstad was the complete package as a player during her time in the program. Her overall ability to shoot, get to the rim and run Day’s offense made her invaluable during her years, and the team went as she did.

“She has meant a lot to us over the years, and she is a good girl. She is a good leader, a good teammate and always trying to help someone out,” Day said. “She has meant a lot (to the program), and there were a lot of games we may not have won without her. She has been a great leader throughout her career, she is going to play hard all of the time and she is the captain on the floor with the ball in her hands.”

Fjeldstad’s career at Isabella came to an end on Feb. 9 in the sub-regionals while leading the Mustangs in scoring with 15 points.

“Basketball is my favorite sport, and I feel like it is my best sport. I will cherish these memories forever, and I am super sad about it (coming to an end). I wanted to leave an impact on this basketball team, and I hope I did,” Fjeldstad said.
