OPELOUSAS, La -- Don't call it a comeback...but it most certainly is. After recovering from her second ACL tear in 5 seasons, Westminster Christian Academy senior, Andrea Bradley sat out her sophomore season for the Crusaders. A year-round basketball player, watching from the sidelines was the last thing Bradley wanted to do.
But off the court is where Bradley is used to succeeding. Aside from being vice president of her class and holding down a 4.0 GPA, Bradley helps out her basketball coach (WCA's Director of Women's Athletics) Deborah Covault in the offseason as an assistant volleyball coach.
Bradley set a school record for the girls team this season after scoring her 1,200th point for the Crusaders. But even with her high point totals each game, Covault says she still has to pull Bradley aside to be more selfish with the ball. "She's the first athlete I've ever had that I've had to tell to be more selfish," Covault said.
Bradley was raised by her mother after her father was killed in a car accident when she was just four years-old. Grateful to her mother and older sister for providing her with a loving family life, Bradley has decided to stay close to home for college next year and will attend Centenary College in Shreveport on a basketball scholarship.
