POULTNEY, Vt. - The Green Mountain College women's basketball program is thrilled to announce that Warrensburg High School standout Britanny Frasier (Warrensburg, N.Y.) has signed her student-athlete celebratory form signifying her intent to attend Green Mountain this coming fall. GMC Head Coach Brad Rideout believes the addition of Frasier will really benefit his squad.
"I am very excited about the addition of Britanny Frasier to the Green Mountain Women's Basketball program," said Rideout. "Britanny is a very competitive player with solid all-around basketball abilities on both ends of the floor. Her work ethnic on the court carries over into the classroom as well. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to watch her grow as a student-athlete here the next four years."
Frasier, a 5'8" forward for the Warrensburg Lady Burghers, averaged 9.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.1 steals and 3.0 assists per game in her senior season helping her team to a 17-4 overall record. She was a crucial cog during the Burghers' run to the Adirondack League Division 2 title and first round win as the fourth seed in the New York State Section 2 girls' basketball class C tournament against Mayfield.
For the tremendous play throughout her career during which she has been a four-year starter and captain, Frasier has received Adirondack League recognition each year culminating in her being named as an Adirondack League 1st Team All-Star this year. She also received honorable mention on the NYS All-State team in 2015-16 as well as twice earning a spot as a Post Star Regional All-Star Third Teamer.
"Britanny is a good all-around athlete and will bring lots of experience to Green Mountain College," said Warrensburg High School Head Coach Scott Smith. "She is an excellent rebounder and will be able to contribute right away at the college level."
Frasier is excited to begin the next chapter in her journey and believes that GMC is the right place for that to continue under the watchful eye of Coach Rideout.
"I fell in love with GMC when my dad and I came to visit last October," said Frasier. "Poultney is small, like my hometown [and] was very welcoming to me. What really made up my mind was the way Coach Rideout and his family went out of their way to come out to my games. That shows his dedication to the players and the future of the GMC program. I know choosing GMC I'll have the opportunity to play sports while getting a top-notch education to better my future."
Frasier will join recent commit Riley Lane on an Eagles team that graduated just one senior from its 2016-17 squad and will be looking to both incoming players to help continue building a program to compete within the North Atlantic Conference.
