An athlete is most commonly known as just a person who is good at sports but there is more than what meets the eye; leadership, persistence, diligence and dedication are all major aspects that make up the title athlete of the week.

“Brooke is a good team player, and she contributes a lot to the team any way she can. Her positive attitude and excellent field hockey skills are something that deserves to be recognized,” said Tomasic.

In Brooke’s case, coach Tracey Kerr does nothing but support her and feels that she is very deserving of this.

“Brooke has a determination and drive that creates a work ethic that makes her an athlete who is dedicated to the sport and is continually working hard to improve herself.  Her speed and skills set her apart from most players in the league,” said Kerr. “Brooke is the player that will set the tone for practices and games, and her teammates follow her lead.  She is always willing to do what is asked and not only shows respect but has earned respect.”  

With this talent and skill comes a lot of practice, and over the years of hard work and dedication Morris has has fell in love with the sport.

“I enjoy field hockey because it is where I have built a bond with a group of girls that I will never be able to forget about. The field hockey field is a place where no matter what is going on it clears my mind and the sport in general is just something I enjoy,” said Morris.

After being nominated and finding out that she won, Morris was ecstatic with the support she had received.

“I was super excited to know I had won athlete of the week because it just shows how great my support system is and how much the hard work on and off the field had paid off,” said Morris.

With the end of her high school field hockey career around the corner, Morris does not plan on calling it quits anytime soon.

“I plan on playing field hockey in college, and I know it is not going to pay the bills, but I am going to keep doing it until I no longer can,” said Morris.
