Brent competed in the all-around in all 10 of the team's regular season meets in 2019. She earned a pair of wins in the all-around and also finished first on bars and and floor one time. The Los Angeles native set career highs on all four events as well as the all-around during the season. She had a high of 39.050 in the all-around and finished the season with an NQS of 38.830. On bars, Brent had an NQS of 9.790 and averaged 9.738. She had five scores of 9.8-plus during the year, including a 9.900 against Cal and UC Davis which tied her for ninth place in school history.

She set her season high with a 9.825 in two of the final three meets of the year. Brent had the highest average (9.723) on the team and tied for second in NQS (9.740). She ended the regular season with a career high of 9.800 in the four-team meet at Cal and averaged 9.760 over the final five meets. Schmeiss was also in the lineup in all 10 meets and matched Brent's NQS of 9.740. She also set a career high in the final meet of the year with a 9.825.
