Women's Basketball Takes Season Opener; Eenigenburg joins 1000 point club
The Trolls opened their season with a home game against the Franciscan

the team who took a seven point victory, 62-55.

In the season opener for the women's basketball team, junior point guard

Eenigenburg entered the season just two points shy of that mark as she
accumulated 998 points in the previous two seasons. Nine minutes into
the first half of the home game against The Franciscan University (IA)
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.
