Senior Spotlight: Arnold Leaves Behind Lasting Legacy at Coleman
MISportsNow is putting the spotlight on northern Michigan high school senior student-athletes who had their seasons cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As Coleman senior Connor Arnold prepares to head off to college in the fall, he leaves behind quite a legacy on the hardwood.
After leading the Comets to their first winning campaign (12-9) in a decade in the winter, Arnold finished his career with 1,187 points. Coleman’s previous career scoring record was 950 points.
Arnold remembers the moment he sank a free throw to make program history.
“I knew that I hit it. I was counting up the points and everything,” Arnold said. “I was really excited for it, becoming the program’s scoring leader. I thought it was a really big accomplishment. It’s really great to be known to be the first one, so I’m going to be something people always remember. That means a lot to me.”
Arnold will attend Mid Michigan College in the fall and major in accounting.
