GREAT FALLS – The Providence women’s basketball program continues to add high profile talent throughout the off-season which extends to the Argos’ latest signee, Brooklyn Harn, announced by head coach Bill Himmelberg on Friday.
Harn, a native of Olympia, Washington, comes to the Argos after a phenomenal career as a tri-sport student-athlete at North Thurston High School. She competed in basketball, tennis, and volleyball. On the hardwood, Harn was a four-year letterman and three-time team captain with the Rams. She was named All-State her senior season and First Team All-Conference four straight years as a Ram, in addition to being named All-Area and the team’s most valuable player four times.
“Brooklyn comes to us from a great AAU program, the Columbia Cascades, coached by Al Aldridge,” expressed coach Himmelberg. “We have had numerous great players come to us from Al’s teams. Brooklyn is no different as she should make an immediate impact on our program and will be the same caliber of talent as Stephanie McDonagh, Jenna Randich, Parker Esary, and Reed Hazard.”
Harn scored a total of 1,347 career points at North Thurston, including a career-high 43. During her senior season, Harn averaged 19.2 points (25.5 during post-season play), 8.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.9 steals per contest.
In the classroom, Harn was a four-time WIAA Scholar-Athlete and was named North Thurston Public Schools’ Scholar-Athlete during her senior year.
“We have followed Brooklyn throughout her high school career, she is a great player who can score the basketball and plays good defense,” said coach Himmelberg. “She will be competing for minutes right away.”
