Britney Blythe

Britney currently works as a Pharmaceutical Representative for Genentech Inc. Considered as a true "Corporate Athlete" her colleagues describe her as being strong at inspiring and influencing others, and achieving results. 

 

From 2007-2011 Britney was a combo guard for the University of Colorado. As a sophomore she started 15 games for the Lady Buffaloes, 10 of them during Big-12 conference play. Her contributions continued through her junior and senior years with her strong defensive presence and 3pt shooting accuracy. She was described by the Buff's coaching staff as coming from a great basketball background as well as possessing a high basketball IQ and natural floor-leadership abilities. This is not surprising considering her basketball skills were honed over years of training with her father, Donovan Blythe.

 

Britney is far more than just a D-I college athlete. She was an honor roll student at Colorado, majoring in International Affairs with an emphasis in International Business. She went to high school at St. Ignatius College Preparatory School in San Francisco, where she was a two-time Street & Smith All-American and two-time All-West Catholic Athletic League selection, helping the Wildcats claim back-to-back CIF Central Coast Section Division III titles. Britney was also rated one of the top 100 players in the country by the All-Star Girls Basketball Report.

While completing her second Master’s degree in Art History at the University of St. Andrews (Scotland), Anna coached the university’s women’s basketball team to the most successful season in the program’s history and was awarded Coach of the Year for all team sports (2014).

Brought up in a basketball family, Anna’s father John played at the University of Pennsylvania for Coach Chuck Daly before playing in France for Sanary Basket in the 1970s. Her younger brother Max played in New Zealand and her older brother Ben played at Amherst College and then professionally overseas in Switzerland, Costa Rica, Ireland, Malta, and Mauritius.

Devereaux Peters

 

Devereaux Peters played college ball at Notre Dame where she was named Defensive Player of the Year for the Big East Conference in 2012. She also led the Notre Dame squad that finished second in the 2012 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. Now a standout forward for the WNBA Phoenix Mercury, Peters splits her time between playing in the United States and overseas.

 

In an interview with Because She Can, Peters explained that her basketball journey began when she was only five years old. Growing up, she was incredibly athletic and tried a wide variety of sports before she narrowed her focus to basketball in high school because of her height and what “felt most natural” to her. Peters says that she is “passionate about basketball because it has done so much for my life and shaped who I am as a woman. It kept me out of trouble when I was young, allowed me to go to college for free, and has given me the opportunity to travel the world and get paid for playing. I love the game of basketball, even with all the hard times I have experienced because of it. A love like that only comes when you are truly passionate about something.”
