BRUXVOORT SETS WOMEN'S SCORING RECORD
Kara Bruxvoort eclipsed Trinity Christian College's all-time scoring mark for women's basketball Tuesday evening when she poured in 24 points during the Trolls' 71-55 win over the Kendall College Lady Vikings.

Bruxvoort, a senior from Highland, Indiana, entered the game tied with Suzanne Wiltjer (1986-90) at the top of Trinity's career scoring list with 2,359 points. She notched her first bucket less than one minute into the game.

"It's great to achieve such a terrific accomplishment," said the 6-foot-2-inch center. "My teammates deserve a lot of credit because without their help, I could not have done this."

With Tuesday's CCAC win, the Trolls raised their conference record to 2-1 while boosting their overall slate to 10-10. Bruxvoort has been the driving force for the team this year, averaging more than 21 points and 9 rebounds a game to lead the conference. She was named CCAC Player of the Year in 2002 and landed all-conference honors after her first three seasons.

"Kara's been a tremendous player these four years," said coach Amy Strong. "She works hard and pushes herself to improve as a player. We count on her to provide consistent scoring and rebounding, and her leadership has proven invaluable. She has earned great respect from our opponents, and that speaks volumes about her talent and work ethic."
