Women's Basketball Takes
Season Opener; Eenigenburg joins 1000 point club
The Trolls opened their season with a home game against the Franciscan
University (IA). The game was the first look at the 2004-05 team that
has 13 players, nine of which are returning. It was a good outing for
the team who took a seven point victory, 62-55.
In the season opener for
the women's basketball team, junior point guard
Jessica Eenigenburg hit the career milestone of 1000 career points.
Eenigenburg entered the season just two points shy of that mark as she
accumulated 998 points in the previous two seasons. Nine minutes into

Eenigenburg drove to the bucket for a lay-up that put her at the 1000
point mark. She went on to score a total of 14 points in the game.
Eenigenburg joins eleven other Trinity Christian women's basketball
players in the record books who have reached that milestone.
