GLENVILLE - Rachel Redick, Lady Pioneers senior guard, became Glenville State College's all-time leading women's scorer with 2001 career points during Thursday's 89-72 win over Ohio Valley. That record was previously held by Nikki Cale, who had scored 1979 points.

The Lady Pioneers, ranked 9th nationally according to the latest USA Today/ESPN Div. II poll, goes into Saturday's game with an overall 14-2 record.

"It's quite an honor," said Steve Harold, Lady Pioneers head coach, Friday. "She's one of eight players in the history of this league (WVIAC) to do that."

Redick said she's thankful to have passed the milestone, but doesn't think about statistical records until someone brings it up. "I just go out and play," she said. "Every game is a big game for us."

A brief ceremony will honor Redick's accomplishment immediately prior to tomorrow's (1-20-07) home game against Concord. Game time is 5:30 p.m.

Redick, a three-time All-American, was also honored earlier in the week by being selected the West Virginia Conference women's basketball player of the week.

She was also selected earlier in the year as one of the 16 best Division II women's basketball players in the U.S.

Redick's latest 2006-07 statistics include scoring an average of 21.1 points a game. She hits 81-percent of her free-throws and 45.3 percent of three-point attempts.
