Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022, marked the official end of Lynchburg’s Women’s Basketball regular season before heading to playoffs.
Two seniors and twins, Meredith and Brooke Vetter, from Burlington, N.C., reflect on their experiences playing college basketball together, as their season and college basketball career comes to a close.
“It is definitely a bittersweet moment knowing our last regular season game together is over. Playing together is something we have dreamed of since we were in the third grade and knowing it is coming to an end is something I am still trying to grasp,” said Brooke.
Meredith added, “Brooke and I worked out our entire basketball career in order to get to play in college together. So after playing our last regular-season game together I am definitely sad but also so happy that I got to spend these last four years playing with Brooke and I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
Brooke and Meredith said that it was the best experience and a dream come true being able to play together.
“No matter what Brooke and I will be on the same team for life so it is bittersweet knowing that this is the last season of basketball we will play together but I could not be more thankful that Lynchburg gave us this opportunity,” said Meredith.
“Like I mentioned earlier it is very bittersweet. I’m excited for our future but this is something we have been doing since the third grade and not having it anymore is definitely going to be hard. I am just so thankful Lynchburg could give us the opportunity to play together,” added Brooke.
Brooke said, “I will miss the bond Meredith and I share on the court that is something that is irreplaceable.”
“I will miss being able to spend every day playing the sport that we love together,” said Meredith.
Brooke and Meredith reflect on how one another has helped challenge and helped each other over the last four years
“Meredith always pushed me to work harder and to be tough by watching all the obstacles she was faced with and overcame. Meredith was always there to pick me up when I was down and to be my biggest supporter. I always knew I could count on her no matter what.” said Brooke.
“Brooke always pushed me out of my comfort zone of the court and to try different things in order to be a better player and teammate. Brooke is always the person I can lean on and count on. She picked me up when I was down and is my biggest fan no matter what. Knowing that she always has my back made playing so much easier.” added Meredith.
Post-graduation, Brooke plans to attend law school and become an attorney, and Meredith plans to attend DPT (Doctorate of Physical Therapy) school and become a physical therapist.
