Conard senior Shelly Rodgers, a guard on the girls basketball team, tied the school’s record for most three-pointers in a single game when the Chieftains faced Wolcott on Dec. 27, 2014, in the St. Paul Holiday Tournament. Rodgers made six three-pointers in the game, tying the record previously set by Casey Carpenter in two games during the 2000-2001 season.
According to Conard head girls basketball coach Colleen Duggan, during the Wolcott game Rodgers also broke Carpenter’s school record of 86 three-pointers, set in 2002.
Conard beat Wolcott 66-28.
The Chieftains are now 5-3 following a 64-48 victory over New Britain on Tuesday, Jan. 6. Conard had a 4-16 record in 2013-2014, and has already won more games this season than all of last season.
