After Jennifer Stinson topped the 1,000-point mark in her career Tuesday night at Medora, one of the first people she thought about was her cousin.
“My cousin, Emily Owens, is my role model, and she made great strides, and she broke the rebounding record,” Stinson said after scoring 29 points to help the Lancers defeat Medora 59-48.
Owens, who graduated two years ago, is the only other Edinburgh girl to top the 1,000 mark. Stinson reached the milestone with a basket in the third quarter.
“It’s a great honor,” she said. “Going into my freshman year it was something I thought about. My teammates were great.”
Lancers coach Bob White said, “Stinson is a great, all-around player. Even against the big schools this year, Seymour and Brown County, she had 20-some points and 10-15 rebounds even against them.”
