The Muddy River Showcase featuring 40 of the area’s top senior basketball players from Illinois and Missouri takes place June 17 at John Wood Community College’s Student Activity Center. The girls game begins at 4 p.m. with the boys game to follow at 6 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door.

QUINCY — When it comes time to induct Abbey Schreacke into the Quincy Notre Dame Hall of Fame, the writer of her biography better not be limited to a certain number of words.

The honors she accumulated on the hardwood alone outdo most everyone.

Add in what she accomplished playing volleyball and softball as well and it’s bound to be one of the longest Hall of Fame bios ever. Just consider this, she never lost in regional play in her high school career, going 10 for 10 across four sports — she played golf one season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Basketball, though, is where she left her biggest mark. The leading vote-getter on the Associated Press Class 2A all-state team back-to-back seasons and the state player of the year according to the Champaign News-Gazette as a junior, Schreacke led the Raiders to a state title in 2022 and a third-place state finish in 2023.

As a senior, she averaged 21.5 points. 10.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists while shooting 56.3 percent from the field, 53.2 percent from 3-point range and 80.9 percent from the free-throw line. She became the leading scorer in program history and the top scoring high school player in Quincy history.

Oh, she carried a 4.0 grade point average at the same time.

Schreacke will represent QND on the Illinois squad for the second Muddy River Showcase, taking place June 17 at John Wood Community College’s Student Activity Center.

Here are six things you should know about Abbey Schreacke:
