Laizure sank seven 3-pointers to surpass the previous mark set by Mandy Babe against Canton South and then again against Louisville, both in 1997. Carrie Swinford matched the effort twice in 1995, against Canton South and Akron Springfield. Laizure also tied the mark her sophomore season. Laizure ended the game against Central Catholic with a game high 23 points.
Laizure’s effort played a big part in the Warriors 41-27 non-conference win over Central Catholic and helped the team improve to 6-8 on the season.
Freshman Demi Leary contributed 11 points for the Warriors, who led 18-6 after the first quarter, 26-11 at intermission and 38-23 heading into the final stanza. Junior Grace Leslie added three points and senior forward Lucy Pridemore sank two foul shots.
