CHESAPEAKE — Maybe Emily Chapman should change her name to Emithree.
Chapman hit a school record 10 3-point goals on just 12 attempts as she scored 35 points to lead the Fairland Lady Dragons to a 66-32 Ohio Valley Conference win over the Chesapeake Lady Panthers on Monday.
Fairland (19-2, 13-0) was 23-of-53 from the field including 16-of-32 from the 3-point line.
Allie Marshall had 11 rebounds and two blocked shots. Alesha Simpson added five rebounds and three assists with Chapman getting six rebounds and had five assists.
Chesapeake (9-11, 6-7) was led by Natalee Hall with 14 points, six rebounds and two assists. Shia Ervin had eight rebounds and Brooke Webb five rebounds.
Kelsie Warnock started the game hitting a 3-pointer for Fairland. Hall hit two straight baskets and the Lady Panthers were up 5-3 at the 5:45 mark.
Chapman then went to work with a 3-pointer, Harley Lyons hit another and then Chapman hit two more 3-pointers, a two-point basket, and made three free throws.
Chapman finished with 17 points in the quarter as Fairland took a 23-9 lead.
A basket by Shia Ervin and a 3-pointer by Karli Davis had the Lady Panthers down 26-14 with 4:31 left in the half.
