Bishop Feehan senior forward Anna Shaughnessy has committed to play basketball at Assumption College. She has been a double-double machine all season for the Shamrocks.
Shaughnessy (6’0 / forward) has been a contributor at Feehan for the past three years, but really emerged as a leader this season. Shaughnessy will follow the footsteps of decorated former teammates (Maddie Jolin – PC; Lauren Manis – Holy Cross, Katie Nelson – BU; Emily Miccile- Adelphi; Marissa Fontaine – Bentley) by taking her game to the collegiate level.
Anna Shaughnessy, a North Attleboro native, was an absolutely dominant post player through her MetroWest career and transformed her offensive game once in high school to be a more complete inside-outside player.
The future Greyhound has dazzled for the Shamrocks this season, including monster efforts vs. Mansfield (24 points, nine rebounds), Bishop Guertin (24 points, 14 rebounds), Archbishop Williams (19 points, 19 rebounds) and Braintree (17 points, 12 rebounds).
I was fortunate enough to coach Anna for nine AAU seasons. On a team full of stars, Shaughnessy was a standout and routinely led the team in the scoring column. She was a scoring machine in the paint, could step out and knock down 3-pointers and had a smooth mid-range shot. She was often tasked with guarding the opposition’s tallest player and did a phenomenal job on the defensive end and on the glass.
In addition to being stellar on the court, Anna is beloved by her teammates and coaches and will prove to be a worthy player and teammate at Assumption. She will be a running mate of local stud point guard Meghan Reen (Norwood ’17) over the next three seasons.
Anna is the seventh player from her AAU team (Mass Premier Swish / NEX Elite) to commit to playing college ball next year: Meg Hill (Mansfield/Stonehill), Maggie McCarthy (Medfield/Harvard), Kayla Raymond (OA/Stonehill), Kaylin Reen (Norwood/Roger Williams), Ashley Sampson (Adelphi) and Tess Sussman (Rivers/Harvard).
