Beth helped lead the St. Edward High School girls basketball team to the class A state title in 1985 and a third—place finish in 1986. She graduated as the all—time leading scorer and rebounder in school history, was twice named The Courier—News Player of the Year, and earned several All-State honors her senior season when she averaged 23.9 points and 13.6 rebounds a game. Beth earned a scholarship to DePaul University, where she ranks in the top 10 in nine statistical categories including the top five among DePaul's all—time leaders in four categories. She was a three year team captain and ranked fifth all—time in career scoring entering the 1996-97 season with 1600 points. She is the School's all-time leader in field—goal percentage, hitting 671 of 1161 shots in her career for a .578 percentage, and holds the school's single-game scoring mark of 42 points. That mark came in the championship game of the North Star Conference Tournament her senior season and earned the Blue Demons their first automatic NCAA Tournament bid. Beth was also a key contributor, as a junior, to DePaul's first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament when the team received an at—large bid. She played in all 127 games in her DePaul career and is described in a Blue Demon media guide as "One of the greatest players in DePaul history".
