(Editor’s note: Montana Western press release)
DILLON – University of Montana Western head women’s basketball coach Lindsay Woolley has announced the signing of local standout Brynley Fitzgerald to an NAIA letter of intent.
The Bulldogs land a local star in Fitzgerald. After spending one season as a preferred walk-on at MSU and appearing in 14 games, Fitzgerald is coming back home to Dillon to play for the Bulldogs.
“We’re really happy about Brynley’s decision to transfer home and put on the black and red,” Woolley said. “We think she is a great fit for our program because she can guard multiple positions, has a tremendous work ethic and is extremely competitive. Can’t wait to get her on campus and start working with her.”
Fitzgerald graduated from Beaverhead County High School in 2018 where as a senior, she registered 18.8 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game.
She is the all-time leading scorer and rebounder at BCHS, scoring 1,155 points and pulling down 1,124 rebounds. She is a three-time first-team all-conference and first-team all-state selection. She was named 2017 Southwestern A Co-MVP and the 2018 Treasure State Classic MVP.
The multi-sport athlete is also a two-time all-conference selection and first-team all-state in volleyball and three-time all-state selection in track. Fitzgerald led the Beavers to the 2018 team state title in track and won two state championships in the 4x400m relay.
Off the court, she is an 11-time academic all-state selection.
She is the daughter of Greg and Keeley Fitzgerald and is undecided on a major.
