The lone-senior starter for the Wellsboro Lady Hornets Cathryn Brought had a tall-order heading into the 2019-2020 basketball season, but was able to overcome the odds and help push her team to a District Playoff appearance despite many thinking this may be an off-year for her team.
Brought averaged 17.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.1 steals to cap off a strong effort on offense and defense as she led her team in points and steals.
She was also able to come up with some big time performances down the stretch, and when the Lady Hornets season was on the line Brought delivered game in and game out to give her team a chance at Districts.
In their playoff clinching game, Brought was fabulous and scored 17 points and hit from downtown three times in a blowout over Troy to give them wins in five of their final six contests of the season.
“Cathryn has been an extremely important player for the Lady Hornets the last four years. She could play any position on the floor from point guard to center. Not only was she able to play numerous positions but was always willing to play the position best for the team and with heart,” Coach Maureen Poirier said.
“As a result, she developed into a player that was tough for teams to stop and extremely beneficial to the young Lady Hornets team this season. Cathryn provided leadership and was the glue that held the team together early in the season as her teammates were working hard in practice and gaining valuable playing time at the varsity level,” Poirier said.
The leadership quality Brought took to the floor was one of the biggest factors to the success the Wellsboro team enjoyed this season.
Brought will continue her basketball career next season as she signed a letter of intent to play for the Division 2 school Lycoming College.
