My name is Brooke Betson, and I am a Grade 12 student at Martin Collegiate. I am grateful to come from a crazy, busy and loving household. My parents and younger brother are always pushing me to be the best person I can be. Considering my family’s passion for sports, athletics have always been a huge part of my life. Throughout high school, I have played volleyball, basketball and ringette; however, my ultimate passion is softball. I love the competitiveness and how there’s always something new to learn about the game. This past year, I played in 10 tournaments in the United States with my travel team, the 222’s, and an American team called Team TFS. Even though I love experiencing new places, I treasure the friendships and life lessons that I learn even more!
I am currently pursuing a softball scholarship and an education in the field of human resource management at a high-level university. Despite how hard I work on the softball field, I always work just as hard, if not harder, off the field. Throughout high school, I have played on my school’s Unified basketball team, been a part of the student representative council, helped out with a local U12 softball team and worked at a part-time job. These have been some of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.
I am so incredibly thankful for my family, teammates, coaches and teachers, who have provided me with the amazing opportunities that have molded me into the person who I am today.
