DULUTH, Minn - Needing just twelve points to eclipse the all-time leading scorer record for North Central University Women's Basketball, senior Lizzy Swanson hit the mark with a 12 point performance to become the leading scorer in program history as the Rams fell to the College of St. Scholastica by a score of 60-48. NCU (2-5, 0-3) shot 30.2 percent from the field while CSS (4-4, 1-2) shot 39.6 from the field en route to the UMAC victory.
Swanson now holds the career record for scoring as she has scored 1,613 points through 89 games in a Ram uniform. The previous record of 1,612 was held by 2016 Ram alum Jamie High. Swanson will continue to add to her legacy as the Rams continue their 2017-2018 campaign with 17 more regular season contests on the schedule this season.
"I could not be more proud of Lizzy." Said NCU Head women's basketball coach Paul Brunner. "I have not coached a more humble, selfless athlete than Lizzy. I cannot put into words how much her dedication and commitment to our program has meant to us in the last four years. Congratulations Lizzy, you deserve this."
Swanson led the Rams along with Haley Modahl as they both recorded 12 points. Bethany Shield added 11 points on the night while also adding eight steals. Alexandria Lindsay scored six points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing out two assists. Freshman Allison Bulthuis added four points while recording seven rebounds.
