McCabe Tops 1000 Points At Colby
Taft Alum Hits Point Milestone
Katie McCabe '04, who now is a Senior Captain of the Colby Women's Basketball Team, reached a milestone on January 9th, 2008 against Gordon College. McCabe became the 12th player in the history of the Colby College women's basketball program to reach 1,000 career points after scoring 21 in the Mules' 74-50 non-conference win over Gordon College.
McCabe needed 21 points to reach 1,000 and finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots, and two steals in 29 minutes of play. McCabe, who had 12 of her points after halftime to help the Mules (2-7) pull away from a 34-33 lead at the break, shot 8-for-14 from the field and 5-for-6 from the foul line.
McCabe, who has 566 career rebounds, also is a three-time all-conference selection in New England Small College Athletic Conference women's soccer for Colby. With 11 regular season games left it is unclear how far up the all-time point scorers McCabe will rise. The career point leader is Kaye Cross who finished her 1984 senior campaign with 1,452 points.
