Plymouth Whitemarsh High School senior Kaitlyn Flanagan has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division I basketball for the College of the Holy Cross.
The point guard and three-year team captain for the Colonials averages 8.8 points, 4.5 assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game — and was a major contributor to the team winning back-to-back Suburban One League conference titles. A four-year starter, Kaitlyn was named Second Team All League as a freshman and was unanimously chosen for First Team All League as a sophomore and junior.
“Getting to play with such a tight knit group and having coaches that support me allowed me to grow as a player over my four years at PW,” said Kaitlyn. “My favorite thing about basketball is getting to compete against others with my teammates and working hard towards a common goal.”
Kaitlyn started playing basketball when she was six years old and currently plays on an AAU team called the Comets on the Under Armour Circuit.
“She’s a joy to coach. She’s already top 20 in the all-time scoring list and has a real chance at becoming a 1000-point scorer this year,” said PWHS Head Coach Dan Dougherty. “I’m also excited about Holy Cross. I think Kaitlyn will do very well in the Patriot League, both academically and athletically. The Patriot League has very high level women’s basketball. Each of the last two years, someone’s been drafted into the WNBA from the Patriot League, so you never know, that could be in Kaitlyn’s future, too.”
At PWHS, Kaitlyn also plays soccer and is a member of the UNICEF Club, a freshman orientation leader, and Vice President of the Class of 2022.
