Since starting track as a freshman, Brianna, has worked her way to three straight All-Blue Division Selections. In addition, Brianna has brought home numerous individual and team accomplishments. Just this season, Brianna placed second in the Junior Class section of the Howell Shot Put Series twice, while also bringing home the silver medal at the Merli Invitational in December.
