Columbia senior Savannah Wittenbrink needed 15 points on Monday against Carlyle to reach her 1,000 point mark for her high school career. Wittenbrink ended the night leading her team with 15 points exactly.
It has been said that the three sport athlete’s best sport isn’t even basketball. She has received accolades in, most notably, volleyball and softball, as well as, her third team All-State and a unanimous all-conference selection in basketball last season.
Wittenbrink’s 15 points, however, wouldn’t be enough to earn her team a victory on the road Monday night. The Eagles (16-6) fell to Carlyle (20-4), 45-41.
Wittenbrink also had four steals and 12 rebounds against the Indians. Her teammates Megan Biscan had eight points and Calli Germain led the team with three assists.
