Brittany Witt
Age 16
Marian High School

Rarely does a freshman burst onto the scene in High School athletics and make their mark, but that’s just what Brittany Witt did for Marian High School last fall. Straight from the halls of St. Patrick’s Catholic School in Elkhorn where she was a standout athlete and scholar, Witt found herself not only making the Varsity Volleyball team in 2012, but was named starter at the Libero position for the Marian Crusaders during their State Runner Up campaign where they finished 42-1.

Her play hardly went unnoticed as she received multiple awards both locally and nationally for her impressive play.  Named Prep Volleyball’s 2012 National Freshman of the Year, to the 2012 Nebraska State All-Tournament Team, 2012 All State Honorable Mention and recognized as of one of 2012 Prep Volleyball’s Frosh 59.

In 2013, she joined the Nebraska Junior 16-1 Team, helping them to a 10-1 finish at the AAU Nationals Tournament this summer in Orlando. Her play again brought attention as she was awarded 2013 AAU 1st Team All American honors. Her team finished 5th out of 90 teams nationally.

Witt has returned to Marian for her sophomore season, this time as the returning veteran on a team sure to advance far in their 2013 march toward State. Brittany is the daughter of Bob and Tracy Kill from Elkhorn, and Tom and Cindy Witt of Falls City. She has a 19 year old sister Brooke who attends Kansas State, and a 6 year old sister Hailey.
