With the local area basketball season officially complete, Warsaw senior Aubrie McRoberts wrapped a career that will not only leave her name impressed on the record boards at Warsaw High School for at least the foreseeable future, but some numbers recently etched her name into the Missouri State High School Athletics Association records of lore, among many other great players to run the floors at their respective schools. 
In her career, McRoberts was a 4-year starter for the Lady Cats.  In her freshman season, she was named to the Honorable Mention All-Conference team, but 1st team All-District.  However, in her sophomore through senior seasons, she was selected to 1st teams for All-Conference and All-District, along with being named to the Central Missouri Media All-District teams.  She was also a recipient of All-Tournament honors for the famed Warsaw Invitational Basketball Tournament for 3 years and has been named both Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year for the Lady Cats in a season.
In her time at Warsaw, she has reset or established records for: Points, Single Game, 42 (Kristy Burkhart, 41); Scoring Average, Season, 22.3 (Sandy Parker, 20.7); Scoring Average, Career, 17.40 (Haley Kreisel, 17.05); Most Free Throws, 451 (Megan Spring, 363); Most Double-Doubles, Points and Rebounds, 53 (no prior record; Rebounds, Career, 1,041 (Charlotte Beck, 919); Steals, Season, 78 (no prior record); Steals, Career, 274 (no prior record).  McRoberts eclipsed 1,500 career points and 1,000 career rebounds in different games this past February. 
Per the official and often updated website for MSHSAA, McRoberts can also now find her name included among many other Missouri greats in a few of these categories.  Her 42 points in a single game is good for a tie at the 38th spot.  McRoberts set that record in January against the Lincoln Lady Cardinals.  Incidentally, the player in the number one spot on that board is Ruth Harms from Schell City High School who set the record with 85 points versus Bronaugh High School in 1951.  McRoberts sits alone at 21st for career rebounds iwith 1,041 in 97 games played.  The player in the number one slot in that category is Brooke Flowers who had 1,563 in 116 games played from 2014-17 for Metro High School.  McRoberts 53 double-doubles puts her at number three, all alone.  Coincidentally, Flowers also holds that number one spot with 87 in 116 games played, again from 2014-17 for Metro High School.
