Former Mundy's Mill forward/center Taylor Britt signed a basketball scholarship with Brewton-Parker, which is a member of the NAIA.
In helping the Lady Tigers compile a 21-7 record and reach the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs, the 5-foot-10 Britt averaged eight points and 10 rebounds.
She is a three-year varsity player for the Lady Tigers. Brewton-Parker, which is located in Mount Vernon, competes in the Southern States Athletic Conference.
"Every year she has really improved," Mundy's Mill coach Julius Omotayo said. "I'm very happy for her. I think she found a program and school were she feels very comfortable at."
