Mason Bossert has never met a ‘three’ he didn’t like. He has built a solid scholastic basketball career around his ability to shoot ‘the rock’.
In fact, Lebanon County sports will remember him as one of the most prolific three-pointer shooters in its history.
On Tuesday evening in Myerstown, Bossert surpassed the 1,000-point plateau for his career during Elco’s 72-67 home setback to rival Annville-Cleona. Bossert collected his milestone with 1:50 left in the first half, on a charity toss while the Raiders were attempting to cut into the Little Dutchmen’s lead.
On the night, the 6-1 point senior guard poured in a game-high total of 25 points, on five three-pointers and four-for-six free throwing. Despite Bossert’s efforts, Elco fell to 2-7 on the season.
Bossert currently leads the Raiders in scoring with a points per game clip around 21. He has made nearly 30 three-pointers this season, on top of the 99 he drained over the course of last seasons.
Somewhat of a gym rat, Bossert aspires to compete in the sport on the college level.
