Marburger shatters Central Women’s Basketball rookie mark

Forward Claire Marburger shattered Central’s freshman season scoring record as the Dutch women’s basketball team built a solid foundation for the future.

The Dutch lineup was comprised almost entirely of freshmen and sophomores as the squad endured a 4-21 campaign. Injuries again took a toll but coach Chelsea Petersen saw reasons for optimism.

Marburger, a 5-foot-9 wing, is certainly one. She poured in 443 points, topping Diane Shogren’s 1978-79 mark of 408. She averaged 17.7 points and 8.6 rebounds and was the Iowa Conference scoring leader. Marburger was a second-team all-league honoree.

Meanwhile, sophomore point guard Emily Dine averaged 9.2 points, with a team-high 2.1 3-point goals per game. Sophomore forward Jackie Kriegel pulled down 7.8 rebounds.
