What Coach Jessica Prickett has to say about Brianna Duffy:
Brianna is the epitome of what coaches love about athletes. She works hard, uses the coaching that she receives to get better, and helps to spread a good work ethic to her teammates. Brianna has been a leader on this team before she was a captain. She is someone I and her teammates can count on without a doubt.
