By the time Lansdale Catholic High School Crusader Gabby Casey took the court in the Jan. 10 match-up with visiting Bonner & Prendergast Catholic High School, she was 16 points away from the glory of snagging the girls all-time scoring record. Mike Cabrey reported the outcome in PR Prep Live.

It took Casey, the team’s guard, exactly four minutes to tie the 1,259 points scored in 1994 by the prior record holder, alum Meghan O’Brien. Moments later, Casey launched a breakaway layup to eclipse O’Brien and top the girls point producers.

“Honestly I was really nervous,” Casey said. “The nerves were building up in warmups … seeing the big student section [of supporters].”

After a brief pause to recognize the accomplishment, the game continued.

Lansdale Catholic beat Bonner & Prendie in a 78–11 rout.

“She’s a kid that even though does so many remarkable things that deserve the spotlight, isn’t always really comfortable in that said spotlight, which is always just sort of amazing to me,” said coach Eric Gidney, assessing Casey’s athletic and personal stature.

Casey is already eyeing her next challenge.

She’s 80 points away from the school’s overall scoring record across both the boys and girls basketball teams.

That high water mark, 1,347 points, was set by player Mike McGowan in 2003.
