Eleven Lady Blue devils have reached 1,000 carer points, but Kathy Geis was the first.

Kathy was a junior and became the first Bellwood-Antis varsity basketball player to score 1,000 career points.

Kathy also broke the single game scoring mark that night. Twelve of the points came from three-point range.

Kathy finished with a school-record 1,631 points. Her record was broken by Karson Swogger with 2,520 from 2013-2017. That was a Blair County record.

Current B-A star Alli Campbell has surpassed her record. She now has 1,651 points.

With an average of 25 points a game, Alli will soon reach 2,000 points and has Swogger’s record in her sights for her senior season.
