Plymouth Whitemarsh High School senior Brianna Austin has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division II lacrosse for the Bloomsburg University Huskies.
Austin started at midfield for four years, scoring 39 goals and had six assists. In her junior year, Austin was named First Team All-League and includes making the second round of districts and beating a tough Council Rock South team in overtime among the highlights of her high school career.
“Brianna is a very athletic, skilled, lacrosse player, but I think the biggest positive is that she has worked hard to achieve the skills and ability to play the game,” said Coach Ellen Reilly. “She plays in season, out of season, and does what it takes to be the good player that she is.”
“My favorite part about playing lacrosse is challenging myself with new goals each season and being part of a team,” said Brianna. “I am looking forward to being a part of the BU family and playing at a higher level of competition.”
Austin began playing lacrosse in sixth grade and plays with the club team NXT. At Plymouth Whitemarsh, she also played basketball her freshman and sophomore years. Her academic honors include Distinguished Honor Roll and Academic All-Star in 2019-2020 and Scholastic Honor Roll and an Academic Achievement Award for 2020-2021.
She plans to major in nursing at Bloomsburg.
