JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Berry College came looking for basketball talent April 17, and decided to double dip, signing two lady Gladiator senior players.

Mackenzie Bryan and Sydney Tanguilig participated in their athletic signing ceremonies together. 

Tanguilig has played basketball since the age of 7 including all four years on the varsity team at Johns Creek High School. 

She served as captain of her AAU teams and the JCHS team.  Her other accomplishments include:

A four-year Letterman;

Tanguilig finished her high school career scoring more than 1,000 points.

Bryan grew up in Johns Creek attending Dolvin ES, Autry Mill MS and JCHS. 

Basketball has been her sport of choice since the second grade. She is the team’s 6-foot 3-inch center, leading the team with a winning record.  

Bryan has also enjoyed watching her sister Berkley, who is a track and field athlete at Samford University.

Bryan is a volunteer with the Georgia Special Olympics as a youth ambassador and also served as a leader in the Johns Creek Junior Civitan Club for the last four years.
