Carleton Signs With Spain’s Perfumerias Avenida
Chatham’s Bridget Carleton is heading overseas to compete in the FIBA’s EuroLeague Women with Spain’s Perfumerias Avenida.
EuroLeague is the best professional basketball league outside the WNBA featuring teams from nine nations.
According to Avenida’s news release, as traslated by Google, “Bridget is the present and future of a brilliant Canadian team, where she is an absolute benchmark. Offensively, her hand from medium and long range and her ability to make baskets are her hallmarks, with defensive ability and a great work ethic. All of them more than remarkable qualities that she will put at the service of Avenida in just a few days.”
Carleton recently finished her fourth season in the WNBA, playing with the Minnesota Lynx. This season she averaged 4.3 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game.
