Week 12: Brittney Oakley (Warrensburg-Latham track & field)
Brittney Oakley has had a storied career on and off the track for the Warrensburg-Latham Cardinals.
This week she signed with Illinois State, where she will compete in long jump, triple jump and possibly the 400-meter dash.
Oakley has 10 medals at the state meet in Charleston with one more season left, and she also helped the Cardinals take home a history-making second place finish at State in 2017.
Off the track she is even more impressive, as the future accountant is No. 1 in the Warrensburg-Latham senior class thanks to her 5.0 GPA.
