Westover’s Bryshea Jackson signs with Savannah State

Two-sport standout wants to run track & field and play basketball

ALBANY. Georgia — Bryshea Jackson admitted she stayed up late Tuesday night responding to all the congratulatory social media posts, texts and emails she received after signing with Savannah State.

The Westover High School two-sport standout signed a track & field scholarship with the Division I Tigers Tuesday afternoon. But the best part about signing with the school is she will be able to play both sports.

“I’m up for the challenge,” she said.

Jackson won the region title in the triple jump three times during her high school career and placed fifth at the Georgia High School Association state track & field meet this past season.

She was also a four-year starter for the Lady Patriots’ basketball team, helping them finish second in Region 1-AAAA and make the first round of the state tournament.

Jackson led the team in scoring at 14 points per game and also averaged 10 rebounds. She said it was on a basketball visit where the track & field coach also expressed interest.
