Girls Student Athlete: Brenna Hinck

Brenna Hinck personifies the true spirit of a student-athlete. Academics are a high priority for Brenna. She was recently named as Academic-All-State, which is an award given by the state for the top 10 students in 3A in the state for their GPAs.

Her future college coach at Dixie State told me when recruiting future athletes they look first for the type of individual the athlete is, then secondly what kind of student the athlete is and third for excellent athletes.

“In Brenna, we have an athlete who is at the top in all three categories. We feel we got an outstanding recruit.”

It should also be noted Brenna is respected by her teammates so much so she was elected as their captain. Brenna is one of the finest individuals I have ever coached in 35 years of coaching.

Just to add to the accolades her coach gave her, Brenna is the type of individual we want as the mold for what we want in our student athletes! Not only is she a great student, as in demonstrated by her 3.977 GPA, and one of the top softball players in the state, she is even better as a person. Brenna may have one of the kindest and most genuine hearts I have met. She goes out of her way to try and please and to try and make others happy. As a student she just lights up the room with her smile and happy disposition when she walks in, and on the athletic field, she is very competitive and determined but still maintains that genuine and kind persona. You could trust Brenna with anything as honesty is definitely one of her virtues. I remember coaching her in basketball. As a coach sometimes you have to make call in scrimmages. I remember making a call against an opponent and she spoke up and said, “No, it was off me,” even though it meant it may cost her team. I still remember thinking what a great world we would be living in if everyone was like Brenna. It has been a great pleasure for me to be able to associate with Brenna throughout her high school career.
