What position do you play?

I play offense.  

How long have you been playing lacrosse?

I started playing before high school for the youth league, and really started taking it seriously once I got into high school.  

What made you want to play lacrosse?

The sport seemed so new and different to me so I thought it would be something cool to try out.

What is your favorite thing about being on the MHS lacrosse team?

The team. A lot of my best friends I met and became close with through playing lacrosse and in general the team just gets along really well together. There’s hardly ever any drama and we all just get along really well.

Any advice for underclassmen on the team?

To keep working hard. For our team to get better and get to the next level, everyone just has to give it their best effort and not give up.

Do you plan to continue playing lacrosse in the future?

Unfortunately the college I’m going to doesn’t have a team but I hope to maybe join a club team just to play for fun.

What college are you going to?

Suffolk University.

What was your favorite memory at Malden High?

Probably doing JV’s my junior year. It really brought the class together and it was a lot of fun.

What is the thing that you will miss most about Malden High?

Definitely all the friendships that I made, especially through lacrosse.

 

What are you most looking forward to next year?

Being more independent. I’m super excited about going to school in the city and getting to experience new things.

What is something that you have learned about yourself during your 4 years of high school?

I would say I learned that if I just really set my mind to something and work hard for it that I’m able to do it.  

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.
