Elissa Cunane who is a Northern Guilford Women’s Basketball legend and current NC State Women’s Basketball star is the co-holder of the record which is 40 points.

Attending the lunch meeting with Chandler, was her mother and #1 support Michelle Chandler, Head Coach Kim Furlough, Athletic Director Brian Thomas, and Principal Janiese McKenzie.

Northern Guilford is the defending back-to-back 3A North Carolina state champions.

Chandler plans to continue scoring at the next level when she joins the Pacers at William Peace University in the fall.
