The Greenbrier girls soccer team had its share of unusual game-day traditions this season.
One involved putting on fake tattoos before nearly every game. Another featured a choreographed drive into the stadium for postseason games.
"We would all meet at Zaxby's, and we all drive all the way in for playoff games with our hazard lights on, honking the horns and stuff like that," Brittaney Borror said.
"Hopefully, we psyched out the other team. Sometimes, it worked."
The customs represented a sense of team unity for the Wolfpack. On the field, Borror's unselfish play exuded the team-first attitude.
"I look for the pass," the recent graduate said. "You don't always have to score as long as the team scores."
The attacking midfielder set school records for assists in a season (24) and in a career (52) and helped Greenbrier to a successful season.
For her efforts, Borror is The Columbia County News-Times All-County Girls Soccer Player of the Year.
The Wolfpack went 15-4-2 this season and won a pair of Class AAAAA playoff games to advance to the state quarterfinals.
There, they held the state's top-ranked team, Walton, to a scoreless draw in regulation and through overtime before falling 7-6 in penalty kicks.
Borror said she hated to see the game go to penalty kicks, calling it a "ridiculous" way to end a hard-fought playoff game.
On average, Greenbrier gave up only about a goal per game this season while scoring more than five.
Many of those goals came from top scorers Alex Cohen (28 goals) and Bay Daniel (20 goals) on feeds from Borror, who scored 10 goals.
Borror's main strength, first-year coach Wes Kendrick said, was her leadership, borne out of a personality that allows her to get along extremely well with her teammates.
"She plays at a pace that other girls in high school usually don't play at," Kendrick said.
"She has great vision and quick passes where they need to be for other people to finish. You can't replace a player like her."
The four-year starter for the Wolfpack said playing club soccer for the Augusta Arsenal since around the age of 10 has helped her develop into the player she is today.
She will continue that development while playing at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville in the fall.
"I'm excited about it," Borror said. "I can't wait to see what happens."
