Brianna Rippee is a sophomore track runner at Struthers High School and is looking to improve to be the best runner she can be for this upcoming season. 

This is Rippee’s first year at Struthers, but she did run at her old school. This season will be a big change for her because she will be running with all new people compared to the previous year. 

She feels very excited about this season even though it’s different from what she’s used to.

“I think this track season will go pretty well, even though this team is all new to me this year,” says Rippee. 

The track is a very hard sport that a runner has to be able to master for different events. She currently runs the 200 and 400 meters and is also learning how to do hurdles. 

Rippee works extra hard to become the best runner she could be. 

“I push myself to be the best that I can be, even at practice,” says Rippee. 

Running track at the high school level is very difficult due to the amount of work you have to put in. You have to really have the dedication to go to practice and work hard almost every single day. The track can get very tiring, so you have to really love running to do it. 

She explains that running helps her in many ways and she’s learned to enjoy it. 

“I enjoy running track because running is kind of a stress reliever for me. It makes you not think about anything, other than just running,” says Rippee.
