The Huntington Beach girls' basketball team continues to shoot its way through the school record books.
When the Oilers defeated Newport Harbor, 61-25, they connected on eight three-point shots en route to an easy win over the visiting Sailors. The eight treys pushed the teams' season total to 132, a school record. The old mark of 93 was set by the 1993-94 team that won the Sunset League championship.
Huntington Coach Russ McClurg served as an assistant on that '93-94 team.
Maya Kennedy hit three three-pointers and led the Oilers with a game-high 15 points. Kelsey Minato is the team-leader from behind the arc with 39.
"It is a tremendous accomplishment that I am very proud of the girls for," McClurg said. "The girls work very hard on taking quality shots versus quantity."
In addition to continuing to build on a school record for threes, McClurg is honing in on a coaching milestone: his 250th career win. If his Oilers pick up two more victories this year, he'll reach that mark.
