BE’s Henley Bredemann scores 200th goal

It was another case of Milestone Monday for Bishop England High School lacrosse standout Henley Bredemann.
On March 18, Bredemann tallied the 300th point of her career in a 19-2 victory over Lucy Beckham High School.
It was pretty much more of the same on April 8 when Bredemann scored the 200th goal of her career in a 19-1 victory over Socastee High School. Bredemann entered the game needing one goal to reach the milestone.
She finished with four goals and handed out four assists.
“I’m not going to lie. Three hundred sort of snuck up on me,” said Bredemann, who will matriculate to the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., this fall. “But my mom told me a few days ago that I was closing in on 200 goals.”
Two hundred goals and more than 300 points aren’t too shabby for a young girl brought up on tennis and field hockey.
Her family moved from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to Charleston in time for her sixth-grade year, when she transitioned to lacrosse because the Lowcountry doesn’t have a booming field hockey presence.
She was a fast learner.
She made an impact at Bishop England during her freshman season as she was picked to play for the South Carolina Select team that competed in a prestigious national tournament. She responded by leading the team in scoring.
Bredemann played on the Palmetto State team for three years, including last year after the Bishops’ 98-game winning streak and berth in the playoffs were voided by the South Carolina High School League’s ruling the
Bishops used an illegal player.
Seniors can’t play on the South Carolina team because it is a showcase squad. But Bredemann and her teammates are hyper-focused on winning another state championship.
“That pushes our team a lot,” Bredemann said. “It definitely was heartbreaking for us. We’re playing to win a state championship. But we are also playing to win it for the seniors from last year. We want to show that we should have won the state championship last year.”
Bredemann excels in athletics and academics. She’s a member of the National Honor Society and sports a 4.7 GPA on the Bishop England scale. Bredemann is the president of the French Club and a member of the
Random Acts of Kindness club.
The Bishops began this week with a 13-0 record and were ranked No. 2 in the state by, and the talented senior had a key role in the team’s success.
She began the week as the team leader in numerous major categories, including goals (43), assists (36), points (79), ground balls (36), and caused turnovers (27).
“I like to score goals,” Bredemann said. “But I’m just as satisfied when I get an assist. I start something, and someone finishes it. I love it when I take part in a play that leads to success for my teammates.”
Bredemann considered attending a Division 1 school, but athletics and nursing school would have clashed for time.
She picked the right school. Catholic University of America’s women’s lacrosse program has about 10 nursing students.
“It’s amazing,” Bredemann said of CUA. “The coaches and I clicked, and my teammates are great. We have about 10 nursing students on the team. I’m excited we can study together.”
