Honors pour in for Nimitz High’s Brittney Griner
02/20/2009


It’s been quite a senior season for Nimitz High’s Brittney Griner, and it’s only getting better.

Griner began her senior season by being named the top-ranked high school female basketball player in the nation by ESPN. She also signed a national letter of intent with Baylor University and during the season she led her team to a No. 1-ranking in the state and the District 19-5A title.

She led her team to a 31-1 regular season record and now she and her teammates are vying for a spot at the state tournament in March.

When the season ends, Griner will be one busy young lady. She was recently named State Farm’s National Player of the Year and she will be recognized on national TV at the WBCA Final Four on April 4 in St. Louis. That same weekend, she will participate in the NIKE High School All-American Game, also in St. Louis. Griner was also invited to play in the McDonald’s High All-American Game, but she will not participate in that game.

“Only 24 ladies in the United States were picked by each All-American committee,” said Nimitz High coach Debbie Jackson. “These are the highest honors a high school player can receive. We, the Nimitz family of students and staff, are extremely excited for Brittney and look forward to seeing her continue her basketball career at Baylor University.”
