Signs pg 2 5-14-20

THOMPSON — Post-graduate Bronagh Power-Cassidy of Dublin, Ireland, signed her National Letter of Intent on May 1 to play basketball for the College of the Holy Cross.
Power-Cassidy previously attended Holy Faith Secondary School Clontarf in Dublin, Ireland. During her season with Marianapolis, she averaged 17 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 blocks, and 3 steals per game. She had a 73 percentage from the free throw line, and 40 percentage from the 3-point line. Power-Cassidy was named a co-captain of the Marianapolis girls’ varsity team, helping the team become semi-finalists in the NEPSAC Class A championship.
“I grew up playing basketball. I’ve played since I was 6 years old, playing out in the back garden with my older sister and my dad and for our local club team,” she said. “Normally I play a shooting guard or small forward, but I’ve tried to develop my game to be versatile enough to play wherever my coach or team needs me to.”
Power-Cassidy said she decided to sign with Holy Cross because of the college’s tight-knit community, saying: “Anytime I visited the campus, I could just feel how special a place and how warm an environment it was. Paired with the chance to receive an amazing education and the opportunity to play with a great team, Holy Cross really felt like the right fit for me.”
Marianapolis girls’ varsity basketball head coach Kirsty Leedham said: “I am so excited for Bronagh to take this huge step in her career and officially sign as a Holy Cross Crusader. Since Bronagh stepped foot onto Marianapolis’ campus, she became a leader both on and off the court. It was a pleasure to not only watch Bronagh grow as a player, but to watch her motivate her teammates to grow alongside her. She is a very special player in that she gives 100 percent to every play, every practice, every game, and every person. I have full confidence that Bronagh is going to have a phenomenal career at Holy Cross, and I think I speak for all of the Marianapolis community when I say I am excited that she will be located right down the road.”
