The St.FX Women’s basketball team will have a solid power forward next season, after Brianna Gottschall committed to the school. The 5’11 forward will follow in the footsteps of her sister, Melissa, who played two seasons with X.

Head coach Augy Jones says having Brianna will fill a pivotal spot on the team; a forward that can defend solidly, but also shoot well. There is also the added benefit that Gottschall is local:

 

Tuesday will be a big game for the X-Women. They play Dalhousie, a team directly ahead of them in the standings. Jones said they are trying to build momentum for next year, and they have been playing solid in the past few weeks.
