Drive to succeed extends Thibeaux's basketball journey
Mar 8, 2014 6:25 PM - The car ride, which placed her not far from the Dakotas, took nine hours. It's doubtful the sunroof was cracked open on the trip. "It was a rough one, because the weather was bad," Grayslake North senior Brittney Thibeaux said of her recent drive to Moorhead, Minn. "There was snowfall. It was just terrible. You couldn't see anything, driving. It was just bad." The drive home was sunny, figuratively speaking. Minnesota State University Moorhead offered Thibeaux a full-ride basketball scholarship.
