'Canes welcome Island forward, Brynn Essery, to roster

The women’s basketball Hurricanes have confirmed the addition of Brynn Essery to their roster for the upcoming season. Essery, a forward from Charlottetown, PEI, is currently completing her time at the Charlottetown Rural High School where she was a member of the Raiders AAA team.

“I’m excited to attend Holland College this fall as I begin my next chapter as a student-athlete. My interactions to-date have helped me realize the potential that Holland College offers me.  I’m excited to see how this assists me as I work towards my career of choice.”

Essery has represented Prince Edward Island at the national level on multiple occasions, including at the Canada Games.

The rookie forward had this to say on what she can bring to the ‘Canes this season.

“I will bring lots of positive energy and a competitive attitude to the team. I want to work hard and help bring the team to the highest level of competition possible.”

Head coach, Jared Cheverie, welcomes Brynn to the roster for the upcoming season.

“Brynn is an athletic forward who gives us depth up front.  We are looking forward to working with Brynn to reach her potential as a student-athlete.”

After winning the provincial high-school championship in back-to-back seasons with the Charlottetown Rural Raiders, Essery looks to find success with the Hurricanes this season after the ‘Canes missed the playoffs last season. 

“Fans can expect an exciting and competitive season. Hopefully they will enjoy every moment of this journey with us.”

The women’s basketball Hurricanes kick off their 2019-20 Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) regular season on Saturday, November 2 when they visit the Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) Mystics in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  The team will hold their home opener on Saturday, November 9 then they host the University of New Brunswick-Saint John (UNBSJ) Seawolves at 1pm at the Holland College Centre for Community Engagement.
