It was a record-setting weekend for North Forsyth’s girls basketball team. Less than 24 hours after establishing a new program mark for consecutive wins, the Lady Raiders ran their streak to 10 games and knocked down a single-game, school record 13 three-pointers in a 65-47 victory over Forsyth Central on Saturday at the D.B. Carroll Complex. Senior guard Kim Blake, who became the program’s all-time leader in 3-pointers in December, knocked down five shots from beyond the arc on Saturday and finished with a game-high 17 points.
