NORTHFIELD, Minn. - Mackenzie Wolter scored her 1,000th career point as a part of a game-high 15 as St. Olaf defeated Carleton 62-43 in MIAC women's basketball action on Monday night at Skoglund Center.

Wolter becomes the fifth player in school history to accomplish the feat and first since 1999.

A duo of St. Olaf posts added double-doubles in the win, as Elise Raney had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Nikki Frogner 11 and 10. Raney added four blocks and Wolter four assists.

St. Olaf scored the game's first seven points and used an 11-0 run over a long stretch in the first half to take a 30-12 lead to the locker room. Carleton closed the gap to 13 early in the half, but the Oles extended the lead to as many as 24 with 6:37 left.

The Oles (5-6, 3-5 MIAC) held a 56-33 edge on the boards to offset a poor shooting night. St. Olaf was 6-for-26 in the second half (23.1 percent) and shot just 28.1 percent for the game. Carleton struggled from the field as well, going 4-for-22 in the first half and 13-of-55 for the game.

St. Olaf hosts Hamline on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
