Some former Washington County High School basketball players are finding success at the collegiate level.

Brittany Edelen, a 2006 graduate of WCHS and the school’s all-time leading scorer, had a good showing this past week as she notched 13 points while going 5-for-11 from the floor, including 3-for-5 from the three-point line in a close 69-64 loss at No. 7 Tennessee Thursday. She added four rebounds in her 25 minutes of play against the Lady Vols.

On Sunday afternoon, Edelen scored three points in limited action, playing 14 minutes in a 72-63 win over Arkansas in Memorial Coliseum. For more on Brittany, visit www.ukathletics.com on the Internet.

Filiatreau, a senior, and her Tigers will be in action locally on Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. when they visit St. Catharine College for one of the final games of her collegiate career. For more on Katie, visit www.georgetowncollegeathletics.com on the Internet.
