Bangle is a goalkeeper out of Roseville, Minnesota, where she was a three-time All-Conference selection at Cretin-Derham Hall High School. Bangle ranked in the top 10 in Minnesota for save percentage for three seasons as a Raider, and was selected to be on a USA Women’s Lacrosse U19 team that played internationally in the United Kingdom.
"The foundation of any good new program is their goalkeeping, and we are very pleased to get a player of Bri’s caliber,” said Rogers. "She was the top-rated goalie and number two rated player in Minnesota, which is a strong, up and coming region for lacrosse. Her quickness, leadership and the way she commands the field will truly help us.”
