LANSING | T.F. South's Kaitlin Togtman has been spending a lot of time working on her shooting.

Tuesday, it all came to fruition as the 5-foot-1 Togtman stood tall, knocking down a program single-game record of eight 3-pointers and scoring a career-best 29 points. She led The Times No. 5 Rebels to a 68-42 win over Illiana Christian in the "Battle of Lansing."

"I was just getting good passes from my teammates, and I was open," Togtman said. "I'm 5-1 with shoes on, so I better be able to shoot. I am not going to get a lot of rebounds."

Togtman broke Lauren Nakoff's mark of seven 3's, set in 2003.

"I have been working on my (shooting) form, getting set with my feet and not worrying about someone coming at me," Togtman said. "You have to give credit to my coaches because they have really been working with me on my shooting."

South coach Steve Breshock said Togtman has made an effort to make herself better.

"It shows, and the hard work paid off," Breshock said. "Kaitlin really played a good game — not just from a scoring standpoint."

Togtman's first basket was a 2-pointer, and she followed it with seven 3's, with a free throw and another 2-pointer in between. She hit three 3's to start the fourth quarter to give the Rebels (9-5) a 39-31 lead as they pulled away.

Illiana (7-11) trailed by double digits but closed to 29-27 at halftime on a Megan Knapper basket. The Vikings tied it on a Jaclene Bonnema basket to open the third quarter, but Togtman took over.

"We seem to in the third and fourth quarters to wear out a bit. We lost some stamina," said Knapper, who had 13 points. "We have to get over that hump. We are not in as good of condition as we want to be."

Bonnema also had 13 points.
