Brylee Bartram, a senior guard for Seffner Christian, connected 10 times against Covenant Prep Christian to give her 504 3-point baskets. That tops the mark of 500, set in 2010 by Ashley Wirtzberger of Gila Bend, Arizona, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations record book.

Bartram is only 17 3-pointers shy of surpassing the overall national record of 520, set in 2015 by boys basketball player Bjorn Borman of Duluth, Minnesota, according to the NFHS record book.

The record-breaking shot came 23 seconds into the second quarter of Seffner Christian's 81-30 victory, the Times reported.

Bartram will have a chance to break the record over the next few weeks, as Seffner Christian (17-7) ends its regular season Saturday and will play in a district tournament next week, the newspaper reported.

"It means a lot," Bartram told the Times. "It's taken a lot of hard work to get here. And there's still a lot of hard work to do. I felt like tonight was going to be the night. I feel relieved."
