Brashier  saw action in the infield, outfield, and in the pitcher’s circle as a freshman. The Heidelberg Academy product settled into being a consistent presence at the plate as the season progressed and has been selected MACJC Second Team All-State. Brashier finished with a .381 batting average and 32 hits in 84 at bats. She hit 25 singles, five doubles, one triple, one homerun, and 15 RBIs.
