Union Catholic’s Brianna Ewing, one of the state’s top hurdlers, signed her National Letter of Intent with the University of Maine on Wednesday morning during a ceremony in the main lobby of the school.

“This is very emotional for me,’’ said Ewing, who lives in Franklin. “I’ve been through a lot and worked very hard to reach this point. “The atmosphere here at Union Catholic really helped me achieve all my goals. To get a full ride is more than I ever imagined. I have my family, friends and teammates here to share this with. I’m just so jubilant right now.’’ 

Ewing has built a remarkable resume during her track and field career at Union Catholic, highlighted by several outstanding performances on the county, state and national level.

As a junior last spring, the versatile Ewing placed second in the 100-meter hurdles and third in the 400 hurdles at the Union County Championships, finished fourth in the high hurdles at the South Jersey, Non-Public A Championships, and placed fourth at the state Non-Public A Championships to qualify for the Meet of Champions.

Ewing has also excelled on the national stage as she ran a leg on Union Catholic’s shuttle hurdle team that placed second and ran on the sprint medley relay that placed fifth at the New Balance National Championships last June in North Carolina to earn All-American honors in both events.
For her career, Ewing has personal best times of 7.71 in the 55-meter dash, 8.50 in the 55 hurdles, 15.03 in the 100 hurdles, 26.01 in the 200, and 65.70 in the 400 hurdles, and she has also helped lead the Vikings to numerous county, conference and state titles.
