Guard Kennedy Frittenburg will wear the maroon and black this season as the newest member of the Holland College Hurricanes women’s basketball team.
The Bridgewater, N.S., guard will study marketing and advertising management at Holland College.
“I’d like to become a realtor and through the marketing and advertising management program at Holland College, I feel I can gain the tools needed to reach my goal,” said Frittenburg. “I also decided to enroll because it provides me the chance to continue playing basketball while continuing my education.”
Frittenburg was a member of the under-14 and under-16 Nova Scotia provincial teams as well as the Park View Education Centre high school and South Shore Surf club teams.
She was the MVP during her time at the Park View and an all-star at the Lady Panther Classic tournament. She was selected to participate in the Great-48 Atlantic Showcase plus graduated with distinction.
“I believe my strengths as a player are my ball handling, decision making and shooting from the perimeter,” she shared. “I look forward to bringing a positive attitude and worth ethic into my first season as a member of the Hurricanes while being a supportive teammate.”
New head coach Chris Connolly is pleased to add Frittenburg to the roster.
“She is a strong student-athlete that will add shooting and stability to our backcourt.”
The Hurricanes (7-14) failed to qualify for the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) playoffs last season. They begin their ACAA regular season on Nov. 2 in Halifax against the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics.
