Medina High sophomore Maddie Williams exploded for a school record 54 points, including a state record 16 threes, in the Mustangs 83-23 non league victory at Holley this evening.

Williams, who had a triple double on the evening with 11 steals and 10 rebounds, hit five threes in the first quarter, three in both the second and third periods and five more in the fourth as the Mustangs built up leads of 23-6 after one quarter, 45-14 at the half and 62-19 the three-quarter mark.

Williams’ 16 threes betters the old state record of 15 set by Courtney Galuski of Cohoes in 2008 according to the New York State Public High School Athletic Association record book.

Williams’ 54 points breaks the old Medina record of 40 set by Liz Pitts in a 51-43 victory over Roy-Hart during the 1989-90 season. It also sets an overall school mark as the boys’ record is 45 set by James Kingsley in a win over Roy-Hart during the 2000-01 season.

“I’m just thrilled for her,” said Medina Coach Ken Haak. “She’s a great shooter and her teammates did a great job in finding her. She was just hot and was very consistent.”

Je’ne Brown added 15 points and 17 rebounds for the Mustangs as Kayla Cuadra had 5 points, Molley Gross 4, Maddie Winters and Katie Bielicki 2 and Emily Kams 1.

Olivia Radford scored 14 to lead Holley which slips to 0-14.
