FROM COACH HANSON:
“Though Brooke was not recognized as the Tournament Most Outstanding Player [in this year’s national tournament], there is no doubt in my mind that everyone in the gym and the country believes she should have received that recognition. She had a tremendous career with the amazing help she offered each season and teammates who also pushed for our success. Brooke’s individual achievements within this heavily-dependent team sport will always be remembered.”
