Lynne Lorenzen, 18, Wins the Big One Handily with 6,497 Points
Teams like the Lady Vikes don't often make national records but Lynne has been well prepped for her feat. Everyone in her family (she has three older brothers and two older sisters) is at least 6' and all have been hoopsters. More important, her dad, Russ, a hog farmer, and mother, Frances, who played on an Iowa championship team in 1952, have taught her that "nothing will ever be all positive," and they have been right. As record mania set in, fans and newspeople began scribbling down Lynne's every point and going crazy. Other folks have called her a ball hog. All in all, she admits, breaking the record "jumped in front of my main goal, which is to just have fun playing basketball." Then, with the record in hand, she went on to pump in 71 of the Lady Vikes' 83 points in the regional play-off game to qualify for the Iowa state championships this week.
Her next problem will be picking a college from a raft of those offering scholarships. "Basketball is paving a future for me," she says, which is one reason she sets strict priorities during the season. "It's just like the dictionary: basketball, books," says Lynne, smiling, "and then boys."
