Middleton girls distance-running standout Amber Brooks, who capped her sparkling prep career with a second-place finish in the 800 meters at the recent Class 2A state meet, confirmed this evening she has committed to North Carolina Central University.
She said she'll sign May 23. "I toured the school and I liked the coaches, school and the environment," Brooks said in a text message to the Times.
A two-time state medalist in the 800, Brooks also won county, district and region titles in the event this past spring. Last fall, she was a 2A region qualifier in cross country.
