    THUMBS UP: To Courtney Albritton. The Valdosta State University softball player won the Gulf South Conference Commissioner’s Trophy. Albritton was selected from a group of six outstanding female GSC athletes and presented with the honor at the GSC Awards Banquet in Pensacola, Fla., this week. Of all of the awards given out by the Gulf South Conference, the Commissioner’s Trophy is the most prestigious. The award represents the highest honor that the conference can bestow on a student-athlete and recognizes the top male and female student-athletes in the league for not only their athletic prowess, but also their accomplishments in the classroom and the
    community. Albritton follows in the footsteps of her former teammate Morgan Johnson, who won the award in both 2012 and 2013.
