Best EWU shooter ever?

The EWU womens' team is absolutely full of talent. One of those is Kyla Evans, a senior who I got the privilege of watching play back when I was in college. Tremendous player and a very dangerous shooter to leave out on the perimeter. So it's no shocker that she accomplished this...

Evans, who now has 197 treys in her career, had been just three three pointers away from the record for more than a month. But when a chronic back injury flared up just before the start of conference play, she was forced to sit the last 10 games. The untimely hiatus didn't seem to affect the senior though, as she turned in the best performance of her season in her first game back.

Evans finally surpassed Stephanie Ulmer, who owned the previous record of 195 career three pointers made. Ulmer played for head coach Wendy Schuller from 2002-05.

"I am very happy for Kyla," said Schuller. "She has been through a lot in her career, and is certainly deserving of the honor. I'm glad she is able to leave her mark at Eastern."

How sad is it that I was there for both Ulmer's and Evan's careers? Perhaps I should have taken a slightly heavier load than two classes a quarter.
