Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Kaitlyn Flanagan has signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division I basketball for the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.
The senior played point guard and was a three-year team captain for the Colonials. She averaged 8.8 points, 4.5 assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game — and helped lead to back-to-back Suburban One League conference titles. Flanagan, who started all four years of her high school career, was named Second Team All-League as a freshman and was unanimously chosen for First Team All-League as a sophomore and junior.
“Getting to play with such a tight knit group and having coaches that support me allowed me to grow as a player over my four years at PW,” said Kaitlyn. “My favorite thing about basketball is getting to compete against others with my teammates and working hard towards a common goal.”
Flanagan started playing basketball when she was six years old and currently plays in the Under Armour Circuit for an AAU team named the Comets.
“She’s a joy to coach. She’s already top 20 in the all-time scoring list and has a real chance at becoming a 1000-point scorer this year,” said PWHS Head Coach Dan Dougherty. “I’m also excited about Holy Cross. I think Kaitlyn will do very well in the Patriot League, both academically and athletically. The Patriot League has very high level women’s basketball. Each of the last two years, someone’s been drafted into the WNBA from the Patriot League, so you never know, that could be in Kaitlyn’s future, too.”
Flanagan also played soccer while in high school and is a member of the UNICEF Club, a freshman orientation leader, and Vice President of the Class of 2022.
