The One, The Only Miss Maddie Brockel!
It’s not often that you hear about a freshman who wins three gold medals at state track! This is something that seldom ever takes place at the “AA” level…but Maddie Brockel of Billings West did just that as a freshman in 2015, by winning the 100, 200 and a gold medal on the winning short relay team! The following year she won four gold, taking home first in the 100, 200 and anchoring both relay teams to first place. Plus the West girls also set a state record in the short relay back in 2016. Then in the fall of Maddie’s junior year she tore her ACL in soccer….few thought she would be able to compete in track that year…but compete she did. Winning three more gold and once again helping West High to another state record in the short relay.
