Brittney Newcomb, the starting combo guard the last two seasons for YVCC’s Women’s Basketball Team, signed a National Letter of Intent to play at NCAA Division I Weber State. Brittney helped lead the Yaks to back-to-back NWAACC Championship Game appearances. For her efforts she was selected First Team All-NWAACC Tournament in 2010 and 2011 and was also voted the tournament’s Most Inspirational Player after winning the NWAACC Championship in 2011. She was a First Team All-Eastern Region selection both years and was chosen as the Offensive Player of the Year for the team both seasons. As a sophomore Brittney averaged 15.5 points per game and led the team in assists with 2.5 per game. “Brittney Newcomb had a great career at YVCC,” stated Head Coach Cody Butler. “Back-to-back Championship games is an accomplishment that few players will ever achieve. While she will obviously be missed, she has left a lasting impact on our program. The additional time and effort that Brittney spent working to improve her skills is a perfect model for any student-athlete striving to play at their highest level,” he concluded. Coaches representing all the YVCC athletic programs voted the basketball stand-out as the 2012 Female Athlete of the Year.
