Brooke McCorkle has been on the radar for sports for a long time now.  Three years ago, when she was in middle school, she broke the record in track for the discus, dating back to 1999.  Last year, she had an outstanding year as a pitcher for the Crusaders, striking out numerous batters, and did very well overall as a batter, too.  
Recently, she verbally committed to play softball at Mississippi Valley State University, in Bena, Mississippi.  Brooke is only sixteen and a Junior at Wellington High School.  She already is living a life.
She recently spoke to us about her spring season so far.  When asked how the season is going so far, she replied, “Good, I'm really enjoying the season.  I always love being able to play in front of the home crowd & as a Crusader.  My travel team doesn't play close very often.  I worked hard during the off season on both my hitting and pitching, and am trying to use both to help lead the team.”
When asked what draws her to playing softball, she responded that it is “My love and desire to play the game. I started to play tee-ball at the age of 3, and started pitching lessons at the age of 8, and fell in love with the game and never looked back.”
She says her best game this spring so far was ”game one of the night we played Andale. I pitched a complete game run rule win.”
When she is not on the softball field, she can also be found out on the track.  “I’ve always loved track also. I have the Wellington Middle School 8th grade discus record. I took a few years off to focus on softball, and then I got recruited to play college softball,  and now that I'm committed I have decided to start doing track again. I'm really enjoying it.”
When she is not out on the softball field or the track, she says her “favorite subject is math.  I plan to play softball at Mississippi Valley State and major in accounting.”
Brooke McCorkle is truly a Crusader who will go far.
