Competed at the State Level for all 4 years in cross country, earned all-district and all-region selection for basketball and delivered state performances all 4 years in 400m and 800m with capturing the state title her Junior year in the 400m. Outside of Wylie Athletics, she was a member of the Elite Track Club where she earned finishing spots in the 400m, 800m and 4x400-meter relay at the TAC National Junior Olympics in the summers of 1991 & 1992.
She attended University of Texas at Arlington on a full Track & Field scholarship. At UTA, Brenna helped to lead the team to two Women’s SLC Track & Field Indoor Championships along with 2 second place finishes and one Women’s SLC Track & Field Outdoor Championship with three other second place finishes during her career.

She would say it’s the heart of an athlete type spirit that has made this possible and having great mentors and coaches along the way.
