SHREVEPORT, La. – Centenary women’s basketball coach Kristen Davis announced that Kelsey Burtrum and Jessica Bruti completed the necessary paperwork and deposit with intent to attend Centenary College of Louisiana. Both products of the Lone Star State, Burtrum comes to Centenary from Venus High School in Venus while Bruti hails from Magnolia and attended Magnolia High School.

"I'm very excited to have Jessica and Kelsey join our women's basketball team,” said Davis. “Jessica is a great addition at the small forward position. She has a strength for driving and finishing around the basket. Kelsey is a smart offensive player with a great three-point shot. She is a driven person on and off the court and I look forward to seeing her develop the other aspects of her game.”

Bruti was a two-time, all-district academic and a 2014 all-state academic honoree under Erika Ritter. The small forward was named to the all-district team her senior season after being named Newcomer of the Year in 2013. Bruti plans to major in Biology.
