Long Island Player of the Year

Garden City, attack, senior
Well, let’s start with the accolades: Bruno is a two-sport superstar, a two-time All-American and a member of five state championship teams. She was selected to Under Armour All-America team, named MSG Varsity’s All-Metro MVP and Lacrosse Magazine’s Northeast Player of the Year. While we’re at it – she also was Newsday’s 2011 Long Island field hockey Player of the Year.
With deft moves and an overpowering shot, Bruno scored 134 points (93 goals) – second most in Long Island – and led Garden City to a seventh straight state Class B title. She was downright dominant in the playoffs, racking up 29 goals and 15 assists. Bruno scored the deciding goal in the Nassau final and, in the state championship, had six goals and two assists, earning tournament MVP.
She is one of the most decorated local athletes in recent history and now, with a loaded athletic resume (and crammed trophy case), the academic All-American heads to Princeton.
