We caught up with Brooke Secreto on Nov. 17, one day after her 18th birthday and less than a week after she signed with Sacramento State.
Secreto, a senior at Foothill Technology (SS) in Ventura, won the Division IV title at the 2019 CIF-State Cross Country Championships in a PR time of 17:33.40. That time was also almost a 45-second drop from her previous best on the Woodward Park 5K course in Fresno, run seven weeks before.
As a junior, Secreto competed in 15 meets, winning nine and setting the majority of her nine school course records. She is the only cross country athlete in Foothill Tech history to win an individual State Meet title.
As a sophomore, she was the No. 2 scorer on the Foothill Tech team that placed second, just nine points behind, in the D-IV race at the 2018 State XC Championships.
