Manheim Township’s Olivia Matto advances up the court against Cedar Crest defense in the first half during the basketball game at Manheim Township High School in Manheim Township on Friday, December 22, 2017.

Manheim Township senior Olivia Matto (left) scored her 1,000th career point Tuesday night at Warwick.

She finished with 19 points to help lead the Streaks to a 66-44 victory over the Warriors.

The win was extra special since it clinched the Section One title.

She is the daughter of former Ephrata great Mike Matto, seen (right) working his magic against Reading at Hersheypark Arena in the District playoffs back in the 1974-75 season.

The two are shown together Tuesday night after the younger Matto reached her milestone.
