Washburn volleyball, basketball commit Austin Broadie looking to lead Trinity back to state in senior campaign
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Trinity’s Austin Broadie is one of the best attackers in Kansas. She entered her senior season with 1,067 kills. The outside hitter has her mindset on finishing her high school career with a trip to the 3A state tournament.
“I really want us to go to state we went my freshman and sophomore year so I’d love to end on going to state,” said Broadie.
The Knights are off to an 11-2 start, and Broadie has already surpassed 150 kills on the season. Trinity Volleyball Head Coach Marie Goscha said despite her staggering statistics, Broadie is a humble leader.
“She’s so humble and she has a lot of reasons not to be,” said Goscha. “She’s just a great teammate and a humble player.”
But Broadie isn’t just a standout player in volleyball, but also in basketball. She’s already surpassed 1,000 career points headed into her senior season. Next year, she’ll play both sports at Washburn.
“I don’t want to have to give one up, I wouldn’t ever get to play it at the same level again, so I was like I’m doing both,” said Broadie.
While she’s excited about the future, Broadie said amid COVID-19, she’s just thankful for every minute she gets on the court right now.
“You never know what you have until you lose it,” she said. “I don’t want to lose it.”
