Fort Lauderdale Westminster Academy senior shooting guard Chase Johnston broke the national high school boys basketball record for career 3-point field goals made, according to WA officials.
The 6-foot-2 Johnston, who has signed to attend Purdue Fort Wayne, went into Friday’s contest vs. Fort Pierce John Carroll just three 3-pointers behind Duluth (Minn.) Lakeview Christian Academy’s Bjorn Broman (520 in 2012-15).
Johnston banged home six more 3-pointers and finished with 24 points in the Lions’ 78-50 victory. Johnston now ranks No. 1 all-time nationally with 523 3-pointers, coach Ehren Wallhoff confirmed.
