Holly McBurnie Kissane ’87

Holly McBurnie enjoyed an outstanding four-year career at Williston, competing in field hockey, basketball, softball, and track and field. In field hockey, she earned two letters and led Coach Ann Pickrell’s team in scoring as a senior. In the winter, she was a four-year stalwart for Coach Ray Brown ’55 on some of his finest teams, including the 1986 New England champion squad. Holly earned four letters in basketball, captaining the team as a senior. As a sophomore, she was the team’s leading scorer and MVP. During the championship junior season, she was named to the all-tournament team at the prestigious Kingswood Invitational Tournament. She threw a no-hitter from the mound as a ninth grader. In track and field, Holly was a huge contributor to two undefeated teams in both her junior and senior year, captaining the team in her final spring. Excelling in the throwing events, she still holds the school record in the javelin. Her two older sons are alumni, and her youngest son is a senior.
