Somewhere lost in the shuffle of an Evans boys win at Greenbrier on Friday night sat the Lady Wolfpack basketball team.
The Greenbrier girls cruised to a 67-33 win over Evans, in part, because of 10 first-half 3-pointers. Junior guard Sara Oland hit four 3-pointers in the first quarter. Evans had seven points as a team.
"I don't know if I've seen a girl shoot the ball like that in the first quarter," Greenbrier girls basketball coach Garrett Black said. "The only one I can compare it to is Tiffany Blackburn."
Blackburn led the Lady Wolfpack in scoring with 18 points, including four 3-pointers.
Greenbrier led 42-16 at halftime after shooting 10 of 23 (43.5 percent) from the 3-point line in the first half.
With a full line-up of substitutes playing, Greenbrier scored only two points in the fourth quarter, but the Lady Wolfpack still managed more than 65 points for the 11th time this season.
Greenbrier's 18-0 record to start the season is a school record.
