POLAND OH- Poland Senior Abby Farber has officiallly made her decision about where she wants to play in college next season. She will be continuing her academic and athletic career at St Bonaventure to be a Division 1 athlete.

Farber is one of the premiere leaders in Poland’s athletic programs. She is a shining example of a high quality work ethic, which makes it no surprise she got looked at by a division 1 school. However, there are some other connections from St Bonaventure and Poland that could have opened some doors. Former Bulldog Brooke Bobbey is currently on the roster for the Bonnies. She was a big key into building relationships with the Bonnies coaching staff while Abby was at a camp this summer. Brooke and Abby built a bond in their time playing softball together, and you have to believe a friend like that being on the roster is a huge factor in the decision. Farber will feel right at home in New York after she finishes her senior season with the Bulldogs.

Abby took time to make her announcement on Running Point and talk to Anthony Hartwig and Scotty Mincher about what made the decision so easy, some goals for her senior season, and much more. Join us in this wonderful conversation with Abby Farber.

POLAND OH- Abby Farber has become Poland’s shining image of work ethic. From the day she stepped into the gym as a freshman, to now there has never been a day you could find someone who works harder than Abby Farber. She is one of the best examples of why Poland’s program is so successful. She understands, accepts, and executes her role on the team.

The harsh reality of life is sometimes hard work doesn’t equal the results you look for. For Abby, her work has put her in a position to be a a strong leader, and play valuable minutes on the varsity floor. But she doesn’t take it for granted. She knows that just because she’s gotten to this point is no reason to let up her attention to detail. Abby understands that she’s blessed that her hard work has shown results.

Abby has been coined “Big Shot Farber” this season because on multiple occasions throughout the season she has confidently knocked down some of the biggest shots of the game. Whether it be a three that ends another team’s run, or a steal and layup that fires up the crowd, you can always count on Abby to make the big plays.

Farber had the opportunity to talk with YSN’s Running Point to talk about her journey at Poland. She talks with Ty Bartell, and Anthony Hartwig about her senior year, future goals, and so much more. Check out the latest Poland girls basketball player profile “Big Shot Farber.”

The transition between freshman and sophomore year is a crucial time in a player’s development.  They go from being a newcomer welcomed by the group, to being a greeting party for the next incoming freshman. For Poland sophomore Abby Farmer that transition was seamless. She says that seeing how welcoming last years team was to her last season made it easy to return the favor to the new faces this year.She couldn’t say enough about the senior leadership on the team, and how emotional their senior night will be for all of the younger players.  It is something that Coach Blanch stresses as a tentpole of their program. The family mentality, and the idea that no one is more or less important than the person next to them. As far as basketball goes Abby is on the rise. She set personal goals this year to get better on defense, and to get her shot improved. Coach Blanch says she is relentless on defense with an attitude to never get beat. It’s her work ethic that has taken her this far. She buys in to every standard the program sets. Coach Blanch expects amazing things from this sophomore in the years to come, and so do the Poland faithful. You can hear them chattering in the stands when Farber makes a play “that’s not too shabby”
