Plainview High School varsity fastpitch softball player Brooklyn Stricker is known for how hard she is willing to work to help her team. She is what you would call an all-around excellent student-athlete. Being a member of the team at Plainview and living in the Plainview community, Stricker loves to represent the school and the people of the Carter County community.

“I really enjoy the small-town feel. The school and community are very supportive. They push me to do my best and excel in all areas,” said Stricker.

A utility player in softball, Stricker also plays basketball where she can play guard or forward. Stricker is willing to do whatever is best for her team. Her leadership means a lot to both squads.

“Being a good leader means setting a good example and being a positive role model,” said Stricker.

Other than athletic accomplishments, Stricker earned membership to the National Junior Honor Society while in junior high and has applied for membership in the National Honor Society on the high school level as well as being part of the student council.

With the support of friends and family, Stricker feels she can accomplish anything.

“My entire family has been a role model for me. My parents work very hard and are supportive. I admire how my brothers have achieved their goals and continue to work hard,” said Stricker.

Once she graduates from Plainview High School Stricker plans to attend college and major in psychology. Stricker believes in keeping good grades and making her academics her focus while in high school and college.

“The most important part of being a student-athlete is doing well in classroom academics,” said Stricker.
