KENDALL, N.Y. (WHEC) — Practice makes perfect, and that certainly goes for Brittney Marks.  

The Kendall senior has a perfect 4.0 GPA and this year she's trying to bring perfection onto the basketball court.  To do that, she and her team need to practice.

"Just watching practice we've gotten a lot better at shooting and ball handling and our defense has always been good," Brittney said.

Brittney is a 3-sport athlete; when she's not playing basketball she's a member of Kendall's volleyball and softball teams.  A broken ankle during the softball season led to a realization that she wants to study physical therapy in college.

"I've always known i wanted to stay in sports," Brittney said, "there's many different environments, it's not like every day is the same, it's always different, you're always going to have a different person helping someone else."

Outside of sports Brittney is on the student council and a member of the National Honor Society.

"I was really excited, my mom was really excited, it was a really big achievement because it shows that you're in the top of your class," Brittney said.

And she certainly is, congratulations Brittney Marks, the News10NBC Scholar-Athlete of the Week!
