BEATRICE – A Southeast Community College Storm basketball player has added her name to the record book.  Hunter Hartshorn tied the record for made 3-point field goals in a single game.....but the best thing about it, is who she shares the record with....her mom.

Sharon Hartshorn, the former Sharon Ehlers, set the school mark playing for SCC in the early 1990s....hitting seven 3-point field goals in 13 attempts during an 80-73 loss to North Central Missouri College, February 3rd.

Said Hunter Hartshorn,....“Getting to share a record with my mom is something special.  Getting to have our names side by side is something that I will never forget. The experience I have had at SCC and sharing this record with my mom is unbelievable.”

Sharon Hartshorn recalls a game where her daughter had seven threes and had one more attempt, but it was off the mark...adding, "I would have been happy for her to break it.”

Hunter Hartshorn has had numerous games during the 2021-2022 season in which she connected on six 3-pointers. The sophomore Academic Transfer student from Utica broke some records on her own, including the record for 3-pointers in a single season, 95....and in her two-year career, a total of 145. 

She credits Head Coach Lynn Schlake and Assistant Dennis Remmers for having an impact on her.  “I am so thankful for these records, but the one I share with my mom will always be my favorite.”

Hunter Hartshorn's grandmother encouraged her the whole time to break her mother’s record before she passed away.  Sharon said her mother would be pleased for Hunter and I to have our names together in the record book.

Head Coach Schlake says Hunter was a very good leader this season. "Coming from a small school, it was fun seeing her develop into a big-time shooter.”

Hunter Hartshorn started 28 of the Storm’s 29 games this season, averaging 13.4 points per game. SCC finished with a 14-15 record.

Hunter hasn’t decided where she will transfer but hopes to study either business or occupational therapy.
