Early in her senior season, Kim joined the ranks of Maria Fantanarosa, Cheryl Kent, Carolyn Darrup, Lesley Gilotti, Ana Ditchey, Shannon Guinan, and Tiff O’Krongolis as 1000-point scorers for MCA girls basketball. Andruscavage surpassed the mark in a win over Central Columbia on the opposition court. Kim burst onto the scene as a freshman starter and helped the Lady Tornadoes to the District playoffs for the first time since 2000. Throughout her career, her versatile play at the 1, 2, and 3 guard positions has enabled the Tornadoes to match up in many different ways against opposition defenses. In her junior season in 2011, she was a major contributor to MCA’s first District Championship since 1985. The 14-game win streak in 2011 was the longest in modern-day history until they broke that mark in 2012, finishing the regular season at 22-0. The 77 career wins compiled during her four years is the most in any four-year period in girls history since the 1984-87 seasons (69). Kin surpassed Ana Ditchey’s 1246 career points in the District IV opener and finished her career with 1339 points, good enough for 5th place on the all-time MCA list. Andruscavage would hit on 92 three-point goals in her career, good enough for 2nd place all-time. Kim and the Tornadoes went on to win their second consecutive District IV title in the win over Wyalusing and would win 41 out of her last 43 games at MCA. She was named to first team by the Heartland Conference.

Kim was named to the Area All Star Soccer team and was recognized for her outstanding defensive play during the Tornadoes state playoff run. Kim was chosen as the Athlete of the Month for December by the Ed Romance Chapter. Kim is the daughter of Lori and Wayne Andruscavage of Mount Carmel and plans to continue playing basketball in college.
