Congratulations to AMC’s Abby Scheidel who finished her Nutley High School basketball career last week in a tight state game against Mendham. Nutley may have lost the game, but what an amazing stretch it’s been for this talented point guard. Abby started for the varsity team as a freshman and finished her senior year with an impressive 511 points including 90 3-pointers which led the state for most of the season. Abby also had 230 rebounds, 106 assists, 61 steals and 14 blocks. She is the 7th female in Nutley’s history to hit 1,000 points and she now holds the record as the 2nd highest all-time 3-point scorer with 241 3-pointers during her varsity tenure.
She wasn’t born with a basketball in her hand, but it didn’t take long for her to fall in love with the game. By 2nd grade, she was playing on a team and could be found almost every day on her driveway practicing her shot. Her former coach and mentor, Joyce Bukowiec, noted that she is one of the hardest working people she’s ever met and early on had a mature understanding of the game. Well that hard work paid off and we are happy to say that this won’t be the last time we see Abby on the court – she signed with Muhlenberg College and will be playing for them beginning next season.
Abby lives the AMC motto of “Let’s Get the Job Done” every day, both on and off the court. She’s been an honor roll student throughout all her school years. She’s an assistant coach for youth basketball clinics, a volunteer for Relay For Life fundraising for the American Cancer Society, a member of the Key Club and Student Council. Abby started working part time at AMC last summer. All of us at Advanced wish her the absolute best as she moves onto this next chapter in life. We can’t wait to see what she does at Muhlenberg!
