Episode 22: Meet Courtney Albritton Carter



This week’s episode features one of the best student-athletes to ever suit up at VSU, softball or otherwise. Courtney Albritton Carter joins us to reflect on her career as a Blazer and to give us an opportunity to get to know a little more about her. When describing Courtney, former Blazer and dual sport baseball and football player Cooper Lemonds summed it up better than we ever could when he said, “She was unreal. The football team talked about her. The baseball team talked about her. Every other school in the country feared her.” Enjoy, rate, and subscribe! Thanks for listening!
