Judson College senior Libby Whitten was named to the 2020 USCAA Women’s Basketball Division I All-Academic Team. The USCAA National All-Academic award is given to student-athletes with at least 24 credits and a 3.5 GPA.
Whitten, a graduate of Fyffe High School in Fyffe, Ala., is double majoring in Criminal Justice and Psychology at Judson and plans to attend the U.S. Air Force Officer Training School after graduation.
Whitten leaves this advice for her team:
Do not fear all of the hard work that goes into our sport. All of the preseason miles, all of the laps, all of the workouts, and even the worst practice plan your mind can create, do not fear it. Instead, embrace it all with a sense of gratitude because you are able to do something that so many others will never get the opportunity to do. Know that energy and persistence conquer all things, both in basketball and in life.
