One of the hardest workers to ever set foot on the Duke campus, Brown has been named captain for Duke on two different occasions: as a redshirt junior and redshirt senior. She is always one of the earliest to arrive for workouts and stays the longest after practice working on her game. For her efforts, Brown has been named the winner of the Iron Blue Devil Belt award in each of the last two years for her hard work in the summer and preseason workouts. She provides great leadership for both the young and older players. She pushes her teammates and brings out the best in everyone.


Brown has been involved with visits to the Duke Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and Camp Kaleidoscope since arriving at Duke. She has also been a tutor at a local middle school where she visited twice a week to work with students. Brown and the Duke team provide youth clinics, and this past year hosted a clinic along with the Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development.
