Sykes on Briddell: “Kelsey is a very versatile athlete and arguably one of the fastest girls in the Capital Region.  Her speed and athleticism will add a great deal to our team.  She too is from one of the best field hockey clubs in the northeast (ADK) and her growth in the club has been impressive to watch.  Kelsey will challenge for a spot as a forward and/or midfield line right away.”
