Alma, Mich. - Mary Brooks (Portland, Mich. / Portland) has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association softball position Athlete of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday (April 30). This is the second time Brooks has been honored with the award this season.
In the final week of the regular season and with the Scots needing to win out and get help from other schools to get into the MIAA Tournament, Alma won all of its four games with Brooks hitting .615 and slugging 1.154, including two home runs, and adding nine RBI, seven runs scored and three walks.
Brooks is among the best offensive players in the conference. She ends the regular season fourth in both home runs (nine) and RBI (48), and fifth in slugging percentage (.739), and is also in the top ten in multiple other categories.
