A great Comet career

Douglass finishes as Caston's fourth all-time leading scorer

Quentin Douglass enjoyed an outstanding four-year career on the hardwood for the Caston Comets.

The 6-foot guard finished his career with 1,219 points, good enough for fourth all-time in school history. Only Eric Walsh (1,437), Luke Zartman (1,317) and Brent Kelley (1,292) scored more. Blake Harness (1,125) is now fifth.

Douglass averaged 16.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.4 steals per year his senior campaign.

The Comets won Midwest Conference titles in Douglass’ first two seasons. They went 14-10, 16-6, 15-7 and 12-10 during his four years.

The Comets have enjoyed a good run of talent as Alex Herd and Trevor Hoover won back-to-back Midwest Conference Player of the Year honors in Douglass’ first two seasons and Jake Howdeshell was one of the top long-range shooters in the state last season.

“I had a lot of fun and played with a lot of great guys,” Douglass said. “This year was great too. I regret not winning a sectional, but looking back it was a lot of fun. I’m definitely going to miss it.”

Douglass never really had a chance to play with any teammates above about 6-foot tall. He just missed playing with 6-5 Wes Rigney, who is now sixth all-time at Caston with 1,088 points.

The Comets went 11-2 at home this year but unfortunately for them one of the losses was in sectional play to Tri-County, 53-42. The Comets led that game 29-25 after three quarters and it was tied 37-37 with just under four minutes to go.

“It definitely was really tough. It was a great game all throughout,” Douglass said. “It was really tough to walk off the court for the last time. We played well; they hit more shots than we did at the end.”

Douglass scored 20 points in the contest but it was not enough. The Cavaliers’ 1-3-1 zone gave the Comets problems down the stretch.
