NWAC PLAYERS OF THE WEEK - MAY 15
Dakota Brooks, Pe Ell HS, Pe Ell, WA
Dakota completed an exemplary all-around week. From the plate, she went 11-21 (.524) including 3 doubles and 3 home runs for a whopping 14 RBI’s. On the mound, she started 3 games and led the Blazers to 2 wins including a one-hit 5 inning shutout of Clark. Brooks is tied for the NWAC lead in home runs with 18 and is 3rd in RBIs with 71.
“Dakota has been real consistent all year with her hitting," said Trailblazer head coach Kevin Slorey "She’s been a huge impact both offensively and defensively, which is great to see from a freshman. When we need a big hit, she’s one who get’s us a hit. If she’s not pitching or hitting as well as the others, she does not let it affect her and is always ready for the moment.”
