EUGENE, Ore. – Baylor track and field athlete Alexis Brown has overcome numerous obstacles to reach her current success. After battling health issues for years, including competing with an extra bone in her foot, Brown underwent surgery last year to address the root of her problems. Now, fully healthy, she has broken Baylor’s program records in the long jump and is ranked third in the nation as she heads into the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene.

Brown’s resilience and determination have been key to her success. Despite facing adversity throughout her collegiate career, she has remained focused on her goals and continued to push herself to new heights. Her recent accomplishments, including winning the Big 12 title with a jump at 1 a.m., have solidified her status as a top competitor in her sport.

Looking ahead, Brown has her sights set on the Olympic Trials and the possibility of qualifying for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. With a strong support system and a clear vision of her goals, she remains confident in her abilities to achieve success on the track.

In addition to her individual success, Brown is also a valuable member of Baylor’s record-setting 4×100-meter relay team. Together with her teammates, she has shown remarkable speed and precision, setting new standards for the program and aiming for even greater achievements in the future.

As Brown and her fellow Baylor athletes prepare to compete at the NCAA Championships, they are focused on delivering their best performances and making their mark on the national stage. With a combination of talent, determination, and teamwork, they are poised for success in Eugene and beyond.
