Ex-lacrosse goalie Testa killed in car accident
Former Connecticut women's lacrosse player Brittney Testa died in a car accident Friday morning. The Journal Inquirer in Manchester, Conn., reported that Testa was driving on River Road in Willington just before 9 a.m. when she lost control of her car and it rolled over. She was pronounced dead at the scene; the accident remained under investigation as of Saturday. Testa was a member of UConn's 2013 class. On the UConn website, her hometown was listed as Bridgewater, Vt., about an hour south of Montpelier. She started every game as a sophomore and a junior for the Huskies, leading UConn to a 10-6 record in 2012. She played in three games in 2013, posting a 6.04 goals-against average and a .500 save percentage as the Huskies advanced to the NCAA tournament for the first time in program history.

She is a two-sport athlete for the Panthers, also competing in soccer, and an honor-roll student. She plays club lacrosse with Check-Hers Elite. After the 2013 season, she earned first-team All-Carroll County honors.
