For her success so far this season, Reegan Twente is a Tom Lane State Farm Athlete of the Month.

Reegan scored a career-high 16 points on Monday, Dec. 27 in a 62-30 win over Mississippi Valley Conference rivals Mascoutah. She's been a key three-point shooter having made 13 this season, the second most on the team.

"She can shoot it," CM head coach Mike Arbuthnot said about Reegan.

"She's just really developed. Last year she was really, really close, but just having another year, she's now more of a veteran player. She's ready and doing a lot of great things."
