The Brownstown Central girls track and field team concluded its season with an awards ceremony Tuesday in the high school auditorium.

The Braves finished 58-24 on the season under head coach Maria Conklin and assistants Olivia Hanner and Peggy Kovert.

Braves senior Brooklyn Snodgrass was named most valuable. She placed 23rd in the state finals for the 100-meter dash and was a regional qualifier in the 200-meter dash, 4×100 relay and pole vault. In the Mid-Southern Conference, Snodgrass was the champion in the 100 and 4×100 relay and runner-up for the pole vault.

Keeli Darlage, Winks and Wischmeier were all a part of the 4×100 relay that were MSC champions. That relay also competed in the regional at Bloomington North.

Ashley Schroer was named most outstanding field athlete and was the MSC champion in the shot put. She qualified for the regional in both the shot put and discus.

Kaelyn Johnson was presented the outstanding distance runner award. She was All-MSC honorable mention for the 3,200-meter run. She also qualified for regional in the event.

Avery Koch, who competed in the discus at regional, took home the most improved award, and Jazzlynn Yeadon was named outstanding sprinter.
