While the numbers he holds are inflated, the points certainly are not. West Geauga High School junior Josh Irwin passed the 1,000 career points mark during a Jan. 17 basketball game in front of a packed home crowd against Perry High School. West Geauga went on to win the game 58-55. Josh is the first student athlete to accomplish this as a junior in West Geauga history.
