During the RSD girls' varsity basketball game Monday, January 26, 2015, vs. Rochester Career Mentoring School in the school gym, Brianna Di Giovanni surged past former girls' basketball student-athlete points leader Marissa Woodruff (Class of 2012; 1158 career points) to earn the most points ever scored by a girls basketball player in Rochester School for the Deaf athletics history - 1179 points at the end of the game.

When Brianna surpassed Marissa’s mark of 1158 points, the game was stopped to recognize Brianna’s accomplishment. Coach Charles Palmer made some congratulatory remarks and introduced former RSD girls varsity coach Patti Canne, who as a student-athlete earned 1052 career points for Rochester. Patti’s record stood for more than 30 years until Marissa broke it. Two years later Brianna eclipsed it once again.

Brianna is 15 years old and a high school junior, and she is destined to add many more points to her already record-breaking career total. Hands waving high for Brianna! GO WILDCATS!
