Needing nine points to break 1,000 for her career, Plummer reached the milestone with an inside basket with 39 seconds left in the first quarter of a 48-9 victory over Buckfield.
"It's a pretty incredible thing," Richmond coach Molly Bishop said. "We've known it was going to happen. It wasn't until (Tuesday) morning that I was anxious by it. She's a great kid, a great face for Richmond basketball."
Officials stopped the game and Plummer was presented a game ball in a short on-court ceremony.
Plummer finished with 21 points, 11 rebounds and seven steals. Noell Acord had two points and five assists, including one to Plummer on the historic basket, for the Bobcats (6-2).
