Surrounded by friends, family and teachers, Spartanburg Day School senior Brittany Mack signed a National Letter of Intent Tuesday morning to play basketball for the Spartanburg Methodist College Pioneers.
Brittany's leadership led the Spartanburg Day School Griffins to a 19-3 region championship and state semifinals this year. She led the team in scoring with an average 17.3 points per game, 3.3 steals and 3.7 assists. Brittany was named Region Player of the Year and was selected for SCISA's 2A All State.
Brittany said that taking her basketball career to the collegiate level has been a long-time dream.
"Growing up, I knew I always wanted to play college ball, so for me, I knew I had to go out of my way with anything I did in order to achieve my goal," she said. "I would like to thank God for granting me the skill set to be able to work hard and flourish in the sport I love, my family for supporting and encouraging me on my journey, and Spartanburg Day School for helping me to achieve my dream of playing at the collegiate level. I’m grateful for all of the relationships that I’ve created and all of the encouragement and support from my coach and team. I’m proud to call myself a Pioneer."
Athletic Director and Varsity Girls Basketball Coach Joy Couch congratulated Brittany on her notable accomplishments and dedication as she advances to the next level.
“Brittany's team-building ability and the way she immerses herself in her community make her a favorite both in the gym and in the halls of SDS," Couch said. "She will be a valuable member of the Spartanburg Methodist Pioneers, ready to do what is necessary to help her team be successful. Brittany is a coach's dream. I look forward to seeing what lies ahead for her."
