Brown has become one of the area's most versatile athletes during her time at Milford Mill, but she really blossomed in the past few seasons and led the Millers to a second-place finish in Class 3A at the state championship meet.
A versatile athlete who can compete in both sprints and hurdles, she also runs relays and set four Baltimore County records — two on sprints and two more on hurdles — as Milford Mill won the Baltimore County and Class 3A North titles.
At the state meet, Brown won the 400-meter dash, took third in the 200 and ran on the victorious 800- and 1,600-meter relay teams.
Brown is headed to Connecticut in the fall and hopes to keep developing there. If she does, it won't surprise her coach a bit.
"Toni was always a hard-working athlete; she always followed instructions and did everything that was asked," Millers coach James Simms said. "Ever since [her] freshman year, Toni was a goal seeker. It was just a matter of time when she was going to blossom."
