This weekend, Milton graduates Amanda Brophy ’06 and Allanah Wynn ’09 will play for their respective college teams as they compete in the NCAA 2010 Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament.
Amanda, with her Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute teammates, will take on Southern Maine in the first round of tournament play this weekend. The Engineers will be making their second appearance in the tournament; their last appearance was during the 2000–2001 season.
In RPI’s recent game against Skidmore, Amanda, at forward, cut the Engineers’ deficit to one point with a lay-up at the 8-minute mark, and then pulled her team into a 12-point advantage at the 3-minute mark with a pair of free throws. The win over Skidmore earned the Engineers the title of Liberty League Tournament Champions.
Allanah and her Babson College teammates will compete against Emmanuel in the first round of the tournament at Colby College. Allanah, a first-year point guard, scored an average of nearly seven points per contest this season and led her team in assists with 72. Babson’s women’s basketball team are the Division III 2010 NEWMAC Champions. This will be the Beavers’ second consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament, their fifth tournament appearance overall.
