My goal is to grow as a player and as a person and to improve my game in every way possible. I want to help my teammates the best that I can so that we can get that winning season that we strive to get.

Something people don’t know about Cassidy Barrios:

I have a hidden talent for juggling basketballs.

You’re a twin.

Best part of being a twin:

Always having someone throughout my life to go through the same experiences as I did, and we can read each other’s minds and say things at the same time.

Worst part of being a twin:

Vandebilt Catholic standout Cassidy Barrios is one of the best women’s basketball players in our area. And that’s good news to Nicholls State University women’s basketball coach DoBee Plaisance, because Barrios is calling the Colonels’ program home for the next four years. The Vandebilt Catholic guard signed her scholarship with the Colonels a few weeks ago and has since been off to a great start to her senior season. Off the floor, Cassidy is a twin. Her brother Payton Barrios is also a standout athlete for the Terriers.
