Abby Bloetscher towers above her teammates at six feet two inches tall, and she seems to tower above her opponents in not only physical stature, but in talent and skill.

Bloetscher, only a junior, is well on her way to rewriting the Exeter girls basketball record book.

This season, she has reset five school records and she still has another season to continue raising the bar with her career records.

This season, Bloetscher has totaled 438 points putting her career points total at 1193 surpassing former record holder Kim Mayabb. Mayabb totaled 1006 in 1988-1991.

She is also tied for most points in a game with Heather McGorvan with 34 points. McGorvan set the record in 1995 and Bloetscher tied it on Feb. 7 against Selma.

Bloetscher's height also gives her the advantage at the boards. She holds the single season record for most rebounds. She set that record as a sophomore in 2006 with 310, surpassing Heather McGorvan's 297 in 1995. This season, Bloetscher broke her own record with 362 rebounds.

This year, Bloetscher also surpassed Shannon Ooley's career rebounds record. Ooley set the record in 1991 with 689 rebounds.

Abby Bloetscher has accumulated 907 rebounds and still has another season to add to the record.

Bloetscher broke another record last week. She surpassed Brenda McNeil's single season freethrow record of 107 in 1979. Bloetscher has made 128 free throws this season.

Bloetscher is closing in on several other records and has just missed single-game records throughout the season.

With another year to go, Bloetscher is guranteed to be remembered as one of Exeter's top athletes in school history.
