Brielyn Rogers, a captain on Bishop McNamara’s girls’ track and field team and a three-time Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champion in the triple jump, has committed to Tennessee.
The Mustangs senior received more than 100 letters of interest from schools as far west as Iowa and as far south as Texas and Alabama before zeroing in on Louisville, Texas Tech, George Mason and the Volunteers.
Rogers was high on Tennessee and head coach J.J. Clark from the start — the Volunteers have won three NCAA titles and eight SEC championships in women’s track and field — but, according to her father, Charles Rogers, she solidified her commitment after friend and South County senior Felecia Majors said she was also heading to Tennessee.
Rogers, whose versatility has earned her success in cross-country, on sprint relay teams and even in throwing the javelin, currently owns the No. 2 mark in the country in the triple jump at 39 feet 4.75 inches. Majors is ranked No. 3 in the event nationally.
