Brie Oakley, one of Colorado's top distance runners, committed to the University of California, Berkeley on Monday night.

A senior, she announced her decision on Twitter:

Oakley is one of the favorites heading into the Class 5A girls state cross country meet later this month. She set the course record at the prestigious Liberty Bell meet last month.

Oakley, a former soccer player, only started running for Grandview last season.

It was a breakout year: she finished second at the state cross country meet. Then, during track season, she set a 5A state meet record in winning the 3,200-meter race, and also won the 1,600 meters.
