  • Seventh-grader taking on varsity...

    Since the second grade, Alexis Brewer has been ripping up the basketball court. Growing up in a basketball family, Brewer has been influenced by her brothers and her Dad to become a successful Lady Hawk basketball player. The seventh grader has been seeing a lot of varsity play.

    At 5 feet, 9 inches, Brewer plays guard and forward.

    “When I’m on offense, I like to think that no one can stop me and that I’m invincible,” she said. “When I’m on defense, my main goal is to shut my opponent down.”
