During her high school days at Greenbrier, Brittany Leverett got accustomed to winning. She was a standout for one of the premier softball teams in Georgia so blowout wins came on a regular basis.
Some things never change.
Leverett, now a freshman shortstop at Columbus State University, has gotten her college career off to quite a start. Through the Cougars' first 11 games the team is a perfect 11-0 and has outscored opponents by an eye-popping 111-13. Also, two of their wins came against schools ranked in the top five in the nation.
Leverett has played a huge role in CSU's hot start. The talented freshman is hitting .432 with a homer and is second on the team in runs scored (14) and RBI (17). Leverett has also played well defensively, having made just one error in 28 chances so far this season.
If she keeps it up, Leverett will be a shoe-in for the all-freshman team in the Peach Belt Conference and could challenge for freshman of the year honors.
Swiec continues to achieve acclaim
The most highly decorated girl's basketball player in Columbia County history continues to be recognized for her efforts on the hardwood. Greenbrier point guard Michelle Swiec was recently selected to participate in the GACA North/South All-Star Game.
The game features the cream of the crop in Georgia basketball. Other players chosen to play in the game include national player of the year and University of Connecticut signee Maya Moore as well as University of Tennessee-bound senior center Kelly Cain of St. Pius X.
Swiec was one of only two area players selected to play in the game joining Laney point guard Kami Phillips. The game is scheduled for March 25 at Savannah State University with a 2 p.m. tip-off.
Swiec has guided the Lady Wolfpack to a perfect 28-0 record entering the weekend and the school's first ever Region 3-AAAA title.
