Athlete of the Week | Samantha Brusha

Samantha Brusha, a senior shooting guard, on Abington Senior High School’s varsity girls basketball team, shatters the school three-point record of 116. The record was originally set in 2009, by Jen Kelly. The Abington Ghosts were playing Truman at the time, when Brusha hit her 117th three-point shot, and went on to defeat the Tigers 90-37.

Speaking to Samantha’s coach Dan Marsh, he stated “Samantha is a very determined individual who is dedicated to her craft. This just proves that hard work pays off.”  Samantha made varsity her freshman year, yet rarely saw court time until her sophomore year. Coach Marsh continued to speak highly of Brusha saying, ” It’s even more impressive that she did it in just three years”.

Brusha, who also plays club ball for Lehigh Valley, committed to Millersville this past November. With nines season games left in her Abington career, it will interesting to see how much higher this three -point record will be when Samantha hangs up her jersey.
