Brielle Brown signs with TLU
ROBERT C. McDONALD — Floresville graduate Brielle Brown is all smiles after signing her letter of intent to attend school and compete in track and field for the Texas Lutheran University Bulldogs in Seguin. Brown signed on May 30, and was joined by her parents, Roxana and Ben, as well as (back, l-r) Coach Terri Twilligear, Coach Aubrey Lindberg, and Coach Donnie Bishop.

FLORESVILLE -- After a tremendous senior season in which she won numerous gold medals, and advanced to win a silver medal at state, Brielle Brown of Floresville High School has earned the opportunity to continue competing at the collegiate level.

She had options, but eventually chose to attend Texas Lutheran University (TLU) in Seguin, and signed with the Bulldogs May 30. Brown said her collegiate search was quickly narrowed to two schools -- Southwestern University in Georgetown and TLU.

“They are both good schools, and both have good coaches and facilities,” she said, “but when I was at TLU, it was like a family. Some of the girls came by and met with me. They showed me around. It was great.”

Brown explained that there is a strong sense of “family” at Floresville High School, and that she didn’t want to lose that when she left. She feels like she will definitely have it at TLU, though. Brown has also trained with one of the Bulldog coaches during her summer throwing activities, and admits that, too, has helped with her comfort level at TLU.

At Floresville, Brown threw the discus and shot put for the Jaguars. As a Bulldog, she will be introduced to some additional disciplines, including both the hammer throw and javelin.

“I may throw the javelin, depending on how well I take to the hammer,” she said. “If I can do all four, they will let me.”

Brown is admittedly a little nervous about learning the new throwing disciplines, but at the same time, is excited for the new opportunities.

“It will be fun, and will help fill the time at meets,” she said. “And it gives me more opportunity to compete.”

In terms of her academics, Brown’s passion lies in theater arts, and she looks to continue studying the craft in college. Her plans are to major in dramatic media, and then to attend graduate school to continue her theater arts education.

Brown said she will miss her friends and teammates, and once again referred to them as being like a family.

“When I started, there was no track offseason. Now there is,” she said. “We all came together over the years and I have seen the program grow so much. We won back-to-back district championships. I feel a bit sad leaving it all. Everyone here is family.”

Though moving on, Brown will always remember her time at Floresville. At the top of those high school memories will be the District 29-4A meet her senior season. After all, not only did Brown set a new personal record in the discus, she also won gold for her first district championship.

“And that was the first year we had three girls in discus and shot put,” she said. “There were like 20 throwers. We were a team. Normally there are only a couple of throwers. Most girls on varsity made finals. It was a real team effort that day.

“That gold medal I am proud of,” she added. “My whole team was excited and came to watch me.”

In terms of goals, Brown said she wants to continue improving. She is excited to engage in some specialized lifting in the weight room, and in learning even more ways to improve her throws.

She was also sure to thank her parents, Ben and Roxana, as well. Brown said her parents are very pleased with her decision to attend TLU, and have been “super supportive” throughout her entire track and field career. Brown said her parents have been to every meet, and that her dad has even been to nearly every practice session. They are all excited about the next chapter in her story.

“Everything is going to be a challenge, but I like to be pushed to my limits,” Brown said. “I feel like I excel under pressure. I’m very excited!”
