Mihalko becomes third woman Lancer to join the elite 2,000-point club
Riverside, Calif. (Jan. 31, 2017) – Lancer Cassidy Mihalko reached and surpassed the 2,000-career point threshold on Jan. 30, becoming the third women’s basketball player to reach this feat at California Baptist University.
The senior guard came into the game needing only 16 points to surpass the 2,000-point mark. Mihalko was up for the task as she ended up with 25 points as CBU easily defeated the University of Hawaii at Hilo 85-55.
Mihalko’s 2,000 plus points are an achievement Mihalko could never have predicted
“When I was a freshman, my main focus was just to get good minutes; I never thought this was possible, making history and setting records. It's been fun,” Mihalko said.
Mihalko is the first Lancer to score 2,000 plus points since Nicole Davis (’09), who is second on CBU's women’s basketball all-time scoring list with 2,090 points. Sonja Akkerman (’91) owns the Lancer women’s career point's record with 2,373 points scored.
The Lancers, who are eighth-ranked nationally in NCAA Division II, have now won 19 straight games. They have also earned 31 consecutive victories while playing in the Van Dyne Gym.
