Burger King Student Athlete of the Week: Brittany Crawford

December 16, 2010

This season, the Nelson County High School volleyball team made history by becoming the first girls' sport of any kind to win a state championship. Helping lead the way was senior captain Brittany Crawford. A libero for the Governors, Crawford was one of her team's top servers and she also led the Dogwood District in digs.

In addition to a state championship, Crawford also racked up quite a few individual honors. She was named the Region B player of the year, the Dogwood District player of the year and she could be named to the all-state team this Saturday as well. While the individual recognition is nice, Crawford says she doesn't play to receive those honors, she just plays to win.

Crawford is one of the top athletes at Nelson, but she is also one of the top students. She carries a 3.5 GPA and currently ranks 20th in her senior class. She is also a member of the National Honor Society.

While she is undecided on where she wants to go to school next year, Crawford plans on playing volleyball at the collegiate level.
