Why Kansas City Athletics: "I felt an immediate connection as soon as I stepped on campus! I loved the coaches and players that I was fortunate enough to meet, and had an amazing time learning about the program. I not only wanted to go somewhere that I saw as a good fit, I also wanted to go somewhere that I felt wanted and Kansas City provided that for me!"
Coach Hoyt on Froehlke: "Bridget is a dead-eye shooter who has great instincts and a very high basketball IQ. One of my favorite things about Bridget is that she is a coach's kid who has an intense love for the game. She has a rare desire to get better every day, and I believe she will help us continue to raise the bar of standards and work ethic within our program.”
