WEEK IN REVIEW: On the Mark
WHEELING – Karli Bonar is shooting her way into the Ohio record books.
The Shadyside senior needs only four more 3s to become the Buckeye State’s all-time 3-point leader in a career, regardless of school size.
Karli will not be the only Bonar on the list, however, as her sister Marci, Bellaire’s girls’ basketball coach, ranks 20th as she ended her high school career with 212 for the Big Reds.
Bonar currently has 324 career 3s and has helped lead the Tigers to a 12-7 record and into the thick of the Class 2A OVAC race.
