Mercyhurst Prep graduate Kirsten Olowinski already has become the Miami (Ohio) women’s basketball program’s leading career rebounder and shot blocker this season.

Now, the 6-foot 1-inch senior forward is moving up the Redhawks’ career scoring list. Olowinski, who scored her 1,000th point earlier this season, has moved into 16th place on the school’s career scoring list with 1,188 points. She also has a chance to make the top 10. She is 81 points behind No. 10 Colleen Day with six regular-season games and possibly several postseason games remaining. The Redhawks are 14-9 overall and could advance to a postseason tournament.

Olowinski’s four-year teammate, Courtney Osborn, is only 22 points from becoming Miami’s all-time leading scorer going into Saturday’s home game against Mid-American Conference foe Central Michigan.

Olowinski is Miami’s leading career rebounder with 1,057, which ranks third in MAC history. She trails the No. 2 rebounder, Toledo’s Angela Drake, by 30 rebounds. Olowinski also has 159 career blocks, a Miami record.
