Ashland Tomcat 1,000-point club adds 30th member

Cole Villers joined the Ashland Tomcat 1,000-point club on Feb. 5, 2021 against Russell. He joins his brothers, Christian and Chase, among the 30 players in Tomcat history to achieve the milestone. The trio are at 3,814 points and counting.

Cole is a junior guard who still has what remains of the 2021 season and his senior season remaining. He is currently at No. 25 with 1,017 points. He moved in front of the great Harold Sargent from the 1961 Tomcats after scoring 26 against the Red Devils. His career-high of 32 points came in this season’s opener against Highlands.

Three members of the Lynch family – Michael, Bob, and Dale – are among the 1,000-point scorers. Brothers Larry and Joe Conley are also in the club.

Cole Villers drops a pass to a teammate against Rowan County in the 2020 16th Region Tournament.
