Walpole, MA - Walpole Express forward Brianna Luciani of Bellingham, Mass. has committed to Becker College in Worcester, Mass. where she will strengthen the Hawk’s offense during the 2016-2017 season. The NCAA Division III Becker Hawks play in the Colonial Hockey conference. The scholar-athlete also will pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian by studying veterinary sciences.
“Brianna has had such an important role on our team,” said Head Coach Danielle Doherty. “She battles and competes every time she steps on the ice. She is the hardest worker on our team, and her effort inspires the other players. As coach, hard work is the one thing I ask and expect from each of my players. Brianna has gone above and beyond in this area. Not only is she a great hockey player, she is an even better kid. I expect her to have great success at Becker.”
“I want to thank Coach Doherty and Coach Field for helping me to improve,” Luciani said. “It has been a very fun season. While I am looking forward to playing hockey at Becker and am excited for the challenges ahead, I will certainly miss playing for the Express. It was a wonderful experience.”
Everyone within the Express organization wishes Brianna the best in her next great adventure. “The Hawks are very lucky to have you,” Doherty said. “We are going to miss you!”
