Abby played on the Homma Thunderhawkes team in Grade 5, 6 and 7 and then with McMath Wildcats in Grades 8 and 9 team, where she won a provincial first team all-star after finishing second.

In Grade 11 she was a top scorer on her team and was awarded a Fraser South First team all-star.

She plans on studying criminology at the University of Windsor and continuing to give back to her community through a career in policing.
