Scholar Athlete: Glenwood center, Audrey Crowe

Audrey Crowe’s height is hard to ignore. So when it came to the sport of basketball, she knew she would be a center.

“In middle school I was 5’11” so it was kind of a given,” she said.

Crowe is now a senior on the Glenwood girls basketball team and has been with the program for three years since transferring to the school. She was a part of the state championship team as a sophomore and the state runner up team as a junior. Being an intricate part of a winning program has meant a lot.

“The legacy is incredible,” said Crowe. “It’s a lot to live up to but I mean the expectations of it, we try to live up to that every year.”

The Gators are well on their way to another great season. They’re currently undefeated on the year with their smallest margin of victory being 24 points. Crowe doesn’t just enjoy winning though. She says being on the Gator squad has taught her a few things.

“I’ve definitely learned how to get along with people that are harder to get along with,” she said. “I’ve learned how to give my all at something which is probably been the most valuable thing.”

Crowe has a 4.2 GPA and is involved in the National Honor Society, the Beta Club, and FCA leadership. She takes pride in doing well on and off the court and has excelled from the challenge basketball has provided her in the classroom.

“It’s harder to make good grades during basketball season just because it takes up so much of my time so really learning to apply myself has been valuable.”

Crowe isn’t sure what she wants to study but is looking at Auburn University and Liberty University in Virginia.
