She is another example of never quit and believe in yourself. When Brittney was first spotted by the Lake County Challengers she was on the Freshman B team. Through her dads guidance and the ability to draw her own picture of success Brittney continues to demonstrate that you can do anything you put your mind to. From one of the best in Lake County, a Lady Challenger Record holder, a Nationally ranked NJCAA athlete to being an All Conference Team member and Athlete of the Year for the ACAC .
Out of over 6000 basketball programs across the nation, The Challengers came in at 777 (the 80 Percentile and #4 ranked program in IL.) on the National Basketball Club Rankings. Other clubs that tied in ranking with performance points included KC Eclipse, Shooting Stars Blue (TX) and Oklahoma Swarm 2016 - Team Adidas.
Clubs are ranked by a number of reasons which include verification of producing collegiate athletes, performance in qualified tournaments and voting by the board. The Challenger program also placed higher than a number of bigger programs in Illinois that made the list.
Congratulations to the coaches, parents and players! New rankings come out in the fall of 2016.
