Newton’s Gleason breaks Lady Indians Record

Camryn Gleason sets new single game 3-point record for the Newton Lady Indians

PITSBURG – Newton senior guard, Camryn Gleason was on her game Monday night in a road win at Franklin Monroe to set a new Lady Indians’ all-time single game 3-point record.

Gleason took advantage of three first quarter 3-pointers and buried a trey in each of the following three periods to eclipse the old record of five 3’s and set the school’s new Lady Indians mark with 6-triples on the night.

“In the warmups it was kind of a slow start so hitting the first couple of 3’s of the game felt pretty good,” said Gleason. “I was getting on a roll.”

“Camryn told me in practice the other day; ‘Coach I was close the other day,’ and five is the record,” said Newton Lady Indians coach, Ryan Fiely. “She hit those four early and I saw her hit one in the second, and then later in the game I thought – we have to try and get her one, we have to try and get this.”

The Lady Indians bench erupted early in the fourth quarter when Gleason hit her sixth trey of the night bringing a close to the senior’s night on the court with 28-points on t he board to lead Newton to a WOAC win at the Hanger.

“It’s pretty special,” Gleason said of her team’s support.

“It’s neat to see the team get super excited for her,” Coach Fiely concluded. “She’s a kid that is in the gym a lot, shoots a lot and deserves some real good success for her efforts.”
