Brittany's Story … My name is Brittany Roberson, and I am from Salisbury, NC. I have been playing basketball ever since I was about seven years old, and without my parents support it would have never been possible. Through the years, I have gone from recreational ball to AAU to high school, and have loved every minute of it. My senior year, we played Asheville High where I met Coach John Siers and Sebastian Wild. They came to the sectionals game in the 3A state tournament where they asked me to play for Lees-McRae. After visiting the campus and talking with the coaches I was sold. That is how I ended up here today.
