Knoblock, who became the first Wheaton basketball player  (among both women and men) to score 1,000 career points, still holds several program records at Wheaton. Knoblock ranks seventh all-time in points scored (1,195), third in field goals (525) and ninth in games played (108). Knoblock’s school record 21 rebounds on February 10, 1981, against Wellesley College remains intact after 32 years, while her 14 field goals made in the same contest is also another program record. Her talents weren’t just limited to the basketball court, as Knoblock 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. In her post-Wheaton days, 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.
