NORTH NEWTON, Kan. - The Bethel College Women's Basketball program is proud to announce the signing of Abby Schmidt, a current senior at Newton High School. Schmidt, who officially signed a couple weekends ago at Scholarship Day, will look to be a game changer the moment she steps on campus next school year.

Schmidt, a 6'2" post, helped lead the Railers to a Kansas 5A Substate Championship, and a berth into the state tournament. She averaged close to nine points per game, while she was able to grab over six boards a game and turned in an impressive three blocks per game as well. This season led to her receiving a Second-Team nod for the Ark-Valley Chisholm Trail Conference.

Her height and skillset will no doubt be a welcome presence for the Lady Threshers, and has Head Coach Adam Esses excited about the signing.

"Abby is a tremendously talented post player who had a phenomenal senior year," said Esses. "She is a great all-around student-athlete and we look forward to having her make an immediate impact in our women's basketball program!"
