Marissa Brady is a senior who committed to Truman State University, a Division II school.
“I committed on Jan 22,” Brady said.
Marissa Brady committed to Truman for track and field, which she has been doing since freshman year. Brady will be doing the triple jump, long jump, and sprints. Truman’s location was also a factor.
“Truman is close to home, it would allow me to come home on weekends, but far enough away to experience something different than what I grew up with,” Brady said.
Truman is located in Kirksville, Missouri just under three hours away. Brady hopes to perform well for the Bulldogs.
“Getting the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level is an amazing opportunity in itself. I’m going to have to work hard everyday to make sure to meet the requirements that the coach and team have as well as reach personal goals I have for myself,” Brady said.
Brady had great success at the high school level, qualifying for state in both the long jump and triple jump. Brady also qualified for the USATF Junior Olympics during the summer. Brady is also excited for this upcoming track season and has many goals that she hopes to reach.
