Brittany Wilkins, a Suffolk native and class of ’08, earned a scholarship to Boston College to play softball, where she was a starter all four years. During her time at BC, she earned numerous accolades including the BC Softball Leadership award, Most Outstanding Senior Award, and ACC Community Service Award.
While a student athlete at NSA, Wilkins lead the TCIS in multiple batting and fielding categories. She was named TCIS Player of the Year in her junior season, and was named first team all conference and received all state honors for five consecutive years. Wilkins also garnered a number of local and regional awards.
After graduating from Boston College, Brittany knew that it wouldn’t be long before she returned to the softball field, but on the other side. Wilkins stepped on the field again, this time without a jersey. In the Spring of 2013, she had her coaching debut as an assistant coach alongside Kim Aston ’88 and Rudy Copeland ’94. After just one season assisting, Wilkins took over the NSA Softball Program in the 2014 season. In her first season as head coach, she lead the Saints to a second place finish in the TCIS conference, second place finish in the TCIS tournament, and to the quarterfinal round of VISAA Division II state championship.
When asked what it’s like to coach at her alma mater, Wilkins said “I love this sport and I’m so fortunate to be able share my knowledge and passion for the game at a school that gave me so much during my time here. I hope to build a program based on commitment and hardwork.”
