Outpouring Of Love For Bridget Carleton
Watching Bridget Carleton’s NCAA career come to a close, many felt waves of emotion. One of the best athletes to ever come out of Chatham-Kent, and one of the best to ever play for Iowa State, individuals across the sporting world took to social media with an outpouring of love following Iowa State’s elimination from the nCAA tournament this week, which marked Carleton’s last NCAA game.
Here’s what they said.
From teammate Adriana Camber:
I don’t know what to say but wow. To have witnessed the amount of work and heart this girl has put into this game and this team everyday is incredible. Blessed to have played with one of the best to ever do it in Hilton, but even more blessed to be able to call her my friend. ILY https://t.co/lqHcNUIWYO

And from the fans:
Oh dear Bridget, that’s not “all she wrote.” YOU wrote History at our beloved university, you made us love @CycloneWBB again, you smiled the whole way through, you wore the name on the front of your jersey more than the one on the back. We loved every minute. Thank you!

Love that I can say I witnessed two of the best to ever play for Iowa State in Bridget Carleton and Georges Niang. Not only the 2nd all-time leading scorers on their respective teams, but two of the best ambassadors and role models the school has ever had, and probably ever will.
