Former Trojan sets scoring mark

St. Mary-of the-Woods women’s basketball player Brittney Shaner, a Center Grove graduate, became the team’s all-time career scoring leader on Dec. 28 in a game against Indiana Tech.

The senior, who has scored 1,756 points and has 11 games yet to play, broke the previous record of 1,695 points, which has stood since 2002. In addition to her scoring record, the Pomeroy star has set a season record for steals. She is a three-time conference Academic All-American, is the second-leading scorer in the 34-team U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association, Division I, which includes schools from all parts of the United States.

St. Mary-of-the-Woods (5-11) defeated Cincinnati Clermont 104-91; and Shaner had 26 points (11 for 17, 1 for 2, 3 for 5), a team-high nine assists, four rebounds, five steals and only one turnover.
