ASHTON - Records are made to be broken.
“Thirteen years ago I set the record for all time high career points for woman’s and men’s basketball at AFC high school,” said Abby Rager, Class of 2005. “Records are made to be broken.”
Madeline Prestegaard, AFC Class of 2018, not only broke the record on Tuesday, Jan. 30, she surpassed it by 17 points and the season isn’t over.
Prestegaard, a 6’ 3” senior center, has accepted a full-ride basketball scholarship to play for the University of Vermont, a Division I school, fulfilling one of her many goals. Madeline plans to study chemistry in college.
She is excited about setting a new points record for AFC but admits that her reign will probably be short lived as her sister Jaynee has one more year to play for the Lady Raiders.
“The other day I received a message saying AFC senior Madeline Prestegaard would brake my record of 1,471 points at the AFC high school game and was asked I be there to support her. I can’t tell you how excited I was to be here cheering her on. I wish her the best of luck in her basketball career moving forward into college.”
