USC freshman middle distance runner Alyssa Brewer has had a strong start to her Trojan career, already making her mark in both cross country and indoor track. Brewer was one of USC's top runners in cross country and broke the USC freshman indoor 800m record (since broken by teammate Jemima Russell). Brewer now ranks fourth on USC's all-time indoor 800m list. She is a two-time California high school state champion in the 800m race and figures to be a big part of USC's distance program moving forward. We had a chance to catch up with and learn a little more about Brewer the other day.
