Basketball Star is a Name Emboldened

Breanna Bolden ’17 will leave the College as one of the best women basketball players in school history. In four short years, Bolden set school records in just about every major category since the College switched from NAIA to NCAA Division I in the early 1990s.

And her numbers are amazing. She set school records for the most points scored in a career (1,672), the most field goals (634), the most field goal attempts (1,608), the most total rebounds (845), the most defensive rebounds (561) and the most career steals (333).

A public health major, she was also named the CAA Defensive Player of the Year for three consecutive seasons and made the All-CAA First Team her senior year.

Her coach Candice Jackson says Bolden is one of a kind: “There’s so much you can say about Bre as a player and as a person. Every game that we’ve played, she’s put her whole heart into it. She’s the ultimate competitor who practices the way she plays, and as a coach, you enjoy that because that’s what you want to see in all of your players.”

Bolden, it seems, is in a league all her own.
