Jun. 18—Faith Humphrey was a three-sport standout at Christian Heritage School prior to her graduation this year, but it's her favorite of the three that she'll play in college.
Humphrey, who suited up as an outfielder for the softball team in the fall and as a goalkeeper for the soccer team in the spring, is bound for Berry College near Rome, where the point guard will continue playing basketball.
"I have the best memories of it and I honestly enjoy it the most," Humphrey said of basketball. "It's been my favorite since a young age so I continued to pursue it."
