Cross Country season is over, but Brianna Schwartz is still raking in the awards. The Shaler Area senior was named the Gatorade Pennsylvania Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year for 2014-2015.
She is in the running for the national award, which will be announced later this month. Athletes are selected based on academics and athletic performance, in addition to exemplary character on and off the racecourse.
Schwartz was nominated for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Dapper Dan Award in December after earning WPIAL, PIAA and regional titles. She finished 18th at the Foot Locker Finals.
Schwartz was named Pennsylvania's Gatorade Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year as a junior.
