Bourquin scores 1,000th point, then adds 60 more

Senior forward Holly Bourquin scored her 1,000th point Jan. 19 and has since added 60 more.

“She still has a lot of time left,” said Roz Fornari, head coach of the Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, women’s basketball team. “We’ll see at the end of it where she fits into the record books.”

Bourquin, of Fox Chapel, is just the 10th player in the program’s history to pass the 1,000-point mark. She has averaged 10.9 points in each game this season.

“She’s very consistent,” Fornari said. “She’s reliable, and she rebounds well, so she’s a go-to player.”

Bourquin led the team in points, rebounds and field-goal percentage in her junior year. She led with rebounds and ranked second in scoring as a sophomore.

The team travels to La Roche on Feb. 9. The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Tournament begins Feb. 19.
