Brandon plays a key role to the team dynamic off the field as well as a co-captain for the team. Brandon is always leading by example.

At the end of the first half of the season, Lilee was 13th overall in ACAC 3-point percentage at 35.4%. She is studying Education at GPRC, and wants to become a teacher.

When Kelly is on the court, her competitiveness fuels her to do whatever the team needs from her in that moment. Her physical presence on the boards make her tough to stop. She has the ability to get a stop, score a key basket or grab a crucial rebound whenever we need it.

Well done, Kelly!
