KCC women’s basketball signs Britni Upston of Tekonsha

Britni Upston of Tekonsha has signed a letter of intent to play women’s basketball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the team during the fall 2012 season.

During her time playing basketball at Tekonsha High School, Upston made the 1st Team All-Conference (2011, 2012); was Most Valuable Player (2011, 2012); Most Valuable Offensive Player (2010, 2011); Most Improved Player (2009); and was a member of the Southern Central Athletic Association (SCAA) league champions for three years (2010-2012).

Kyle Klingaman, head women’s basketball coach at Kellogg Community College, said Upston is a small-town girl with a big heart who loves the game of basketball.

“She will be an excellent teammate and has a great work ethic,” Klingaman said. “Britni is a very versatile player with a decent inside/outside game that will help us be very competitive this season.”
