In 2016, there were very few times that the Brownstown Central girls track and field team lost.

By the end of the season, the Braves compiled a record of 64-23.

On Monday, the Braves met one last time to celebrate a tremendous season.

Junior Trentity Vaught was named MVP of the team, scoring a total of 117 points throughout the year.

Vaught was the sectional champion, regional runner-up, conference runner-up, and state qualifier in the discus.

She also made All-Mid-Southern Conference honorable mention in the discus.

“I’m expecting big things out of Trentity during her senior year and hopefully a return trip to the state meet,” Braves coach Maria Conklin said.

Brooklyn Snodgrass, a freshman, was awarded a plaque for breaking the 100-meter dash record in a time of 12.5.

She also was named Most Outstanding Sprinter, and she led the Braves as sectional runner-up, regional runner-up and state qualifier in the 100.

The mental attitude award went to sophomore Kristen Stuckwisch.

“She always came to practice and meets with a positive attitude,” Conklin said. “She led through her actions and her words, and she has a mental toughness unlike any others. I’m looking forward to her stepping up as our mid-distance leader again next year.”

Stuckwisch made All-MSC honorable mention for the 400.

Senior Hannah Gallion was named IATCCC Academic All-State for the fourth time (with cross-country and track) during her career.

Teammate Alexis Koch, a junior, made All-State honorable mention for her efforts in the classroom.

A Most Outstanding Distance award was presented to freshman Kaelyn Johnson, who ran the 1,600 and 3,200.

Maddy Pace was named Most Outstanding Field Event.

The senior earned many points for the Braves in the high jump and long jump throughout the season.

Brownstown Central sophomore Shelby Stuckwisch earned her letter jacket by earning a total of five varsity letters in golf, basketball, and track.

Grace Jaynes, a thrower, was named Most Improved.

“Last year, she was a mid-70s discus thrower, and this season she stepped up and ended the season at a PR of 101-3,” Conklin said of the sophomore. “She made great progress throughout the season, and I’m looking forward to some great throws next year.”

A total of 21 girls earned varsity letters on the evening, with four earning their first letter.
