Holsinger was all over the court for the Sasquatch and filled the stat sheet wherever she played. Holsinger finished in the league top 20 in six of the eight major categories.
She scored high in marks that you would expect from a quality point guard: #1 in scoring with 21.9 ppg; #5 in free throw average with 79.7 % on 187 attempts; #5 in steals average with 3.03 spg; and #10 in assists average with 4.3 apg
But the 5' 10" Holsinger also played like a top notch post player finishing #1 in blocks with 67 (2nd in bpg average with 2.23) and #16 in rebounds with 8.1 rbg.
Holsinger holds seven all-time records for the Sasquatch womens’ program.
Those include top marks as the program scoring leader with 1,083 career points, the single season scoring record with 657, career average of 18.5 points and single season average of 21.9. In addition to the scoring records, she is also the program’s leader in blocks with 117, in steals with 171, and is second in assists with 217 and fourth in rebounds with 464.
Holsinger is also the only Spokane women's player to record a quadruple double - a feat she recorded as a freshman last season (15 points, 10 assists, 11 rebounds and 11 blocks).
