Brittany's Story… I played for the Sereno 89 white team, though during high school season I received an email from this school and they needed a center defender. I played center defender in high school and goalie in club. However when I went on my visit to Lees-McRae everyone was so nice and welcoming that I knew I would love to play there and become a part of that school.
