Senior girls basketball captain Ashley Zamarripa beats the school record for three pointer shots scored in a girls basketball game and ties boys basketball record, Jan. 23. At their away game against Riverdale HS, she made nine out of 11 three-pointer shot.
Varsity girls basketball brings home a win from their away game at Riverdale, 52-28, with the assistance of the team captain‘s nine three-pointer shots.
Zamarripa was initially excited when she realized she tied the school record, and looks to attempt at surpassing the current record.
“During the game I wasn’t really paying attention to how many I was making,” Zamarripa said. “My dad told me if I made three more then I would tie the record so I attempted it. I was excited that I tied it but I was disappointed that it wasn’t a league game. I mean of course it would be cool to break the record but I don’t know if I could do that. Yes this was probably the most exciting thing that has happened to far this season because I get lucky if I get 3 three-pointers in a game.”

She is currently tied with alumnus Tyler Breedlove, ’16, for boys basketball school record for three-pointers
Girls basketball head coach Robert Foshee felt pride in Zamarripa for her accomplishment.
“It was pretty special,” Foshee said. “To make nine three-pointers in a game, you have to hit a high percentage of your shots and you need all your teammates to play good offense and find you when your open. It was definitely a team effort. I was most proud with Ashley breaking the record because lately she had been not been hitting her shots and been in a mini slump, but she kept diligent and she was paid off with an amazing game. I think she could also beat the boys record. She one of our toughest players. She fights through injuries and bigger players and always comes ready to compete and play.”
