Oregon 3-sport star sets sights on track team
“I think she’d proven over the course of this year that she’s one of the best serve-receivers, best passers, in the country,” Moore said. “And I think she’s only going to get better.”
The basketball season is not going as well. Currently, Oregon is 3-21 after injuries decimated the team. At one point earlier in the season when Brenner was still playing volleyball, the Ducks had just seven available players.
“I would go and watch to see how they were doing,” Brenner said. “Obviously, it was frustrating to watch. Injuries are something you have to deal with in sports, but it’s just so unfortunate.”
Brenner is averaging 7.9 points and 8.1 rebounds this season in 13 games. The Ducks host Washington and Washington State this weekend at Matthew Knight Arena.
Following basketball, she’ll join Oregon’s track and field team for the remainder of the outdoor season. There have been some who suggest that if Brenner focused on just one sport, she’d be better off.
“A lot of people have told me that in the past. But I love playing all of them,” she said. “I think it definitely helps me as an athlete. Playing volleyball helps me in basketball, basketball helps me in softball. It all ties in.
“I think by me doing so many sports, and switching from one season to another season, I never get tired of just one. I get to look forward to a new season. I get to look forward to something new.”
“I think I’ll just add track and I’ll be good to go,” she said.
