Has Brewer made a college choice yet?

Good question. I have not heard but will see if I can find out. I am also interested to see how she does this year after running XC for the first time. I thought she had a very competitive season (NCS Division I champion) and she should be improved, especially in the 800.

Alyssa has not yet decided her college choice.
