Saints set assist ace Emily Bottem is closing in on 1,000 career set assists. That number could come tonight in the Saints home game against St. Peter. She needs 24 tonight to reach that milestone. Emily is averaging just under 19 a match, but has had more than 25 twice in the five matches the Saints have played. Just a junior, Emily could finish this season number two on the Saints all time set assist list. In the opening games of this year Emily passed Hannah Reuter. Up next for Emily after breaking 1,000 would be Carlie Penn. Carlie ended her Saints career in fifth place on the set assist list with 1098 assists.
