  • VES Girls Varsity Basketball's Bre Jefferson Signs with University of South Carolina Upstate

    Virginia Episcopal School congratulates senior Bre Jefferson—point guard from Forest, VA who is a leader on the Bishops varsity girls basketball team—on the full scholarship she has received from the University of South Carolina Upstate in Spartanburg, SC. 

    On Wednesday, Bre signed her letter of commitment to play for USC Upstate.

    Bre explained that she chose the Division 1 USC Upstate because "they offer a strong program in my chosen major—pre–law—and have a solid basketball program with great coaches and team chemistry.” Another reason she looks forward to joining the basketball team: her sister, Raven, is a junior and starting guard for the Spartans.
