Sudbury resident Ann Knoblock had quite the athletic career at Wheaton College.
The 1981 graduate became the first Wheaton basketball player (among both women and men) to score 1,000 career points and still holds several program records at Wheaton.
On Oct. 4, Knoblock will be honored for her efforts as Wheaton inducts her into the school's Yowell Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. in the Emerson Dining Hall.
The Newbridge Road resident ranks seventh all-time in points scored (1,195), third in field goals (525) and ninth in games played (108). Her school record of 21 rebounds on Feb. 10, 1981, against Wellesley College still stands after 32 years, while her 14 field goals made in the same contest is also another program record.
But Knoblock's talents weren't limited to the hardcourt as was invited to the 1981 AIWA National Tennis Championship and appeared as a finalist in the Massachusetts Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (MAIAW) Tennis Championship in the same year.
After graduating from Wheaton, Knoblock was a member of the USTA Senior 4.5 national championship team and 1993 USTA/New England 5.0 championship team, among several other tennis accolades during her career.Attempts to reach Knoblock were unsuccessful.
Overall, the inaugural hall of fame class includes seven Wheaton alums, two staff members and the 1983 field hockey team.
"I am very excited to welcome seven alums, two staff members and one exceptional team into the inaugural class of the Wheaton College Athletics Yowell Hall of Fame,” said Director of Athletics and Recreation John Sutyak in a statement.
