My Carolina Experience: Trinity Bursey
When Trinity Bursey was 10 years old, her father’s military assignment brought her family to England. At the time, she and her siblings were active and into sports but they were not involved in organized athletics. Shortly after arriving her father brought home a book on basketball mechanics and they began going to the park every day after school to practice drills.
Lady Heels point to future
Carolina loses senior starters La'Tangela Atkinson, an ACC all-defensive player, and Jessica Sell. But the Heels return their top three scorers and every one of their important bench players. The recruiting class includes 6-foot-3 Jessica Breland of Bertie High, a McDonald's All-American, and 6-2 Trinity Bursey of Western Harnett, who made all-state. With the production the Heels got this season from Latta, Little and Erlana Larkins, offense shouldn't be a problem.
Lady Tar Heels Sign Two In-State Standouts
The North Carolina women's basketball program signed two players to national letters of intent on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. Jessica Breland from Kelford, N.C., and Trinity Bursey from Sanford, N.C., will be freshmen on the 2006-07 squad. "We're the University of North Carolina and it's nice to have what I consider the two best players in the state becoming Tar Heels," UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said.
