Overview

Softball - Girls 1st Team

Brooks Softball has enjoyed great success over the years. As part of the Independent School League (ISL), Brooks dominated the league winning seven ISL titles in the span of 11 years. More recently, while the squad has not finished first, it has met it's goal of being competitive in every game.

With only a 1st team, there is a range of experience and abilities with a goal to develop every player while maintaining a high level of competition. We are fortunate to compete with the other nine schools in the ISL who offer softball as well as with some larger schools outside of the league, such as Phillips Andover, Phillips Exeter, Worcester Academy and St. Paul's School.

The season culminates with a two-day double elimination tournament, the Big East Invitational, co-hosted by Brooks and neighbor Phillips Academy. It's a great weekend of softball for all involved and a particularly fun way to wrap up the season.

The players enjoy a great team experience both on and off the field and compete hard on a daily basis. No matter the outcome of the game, Brooks competes hard in every contest with every member of the squad contributing through personal effort and determination. When possible, the team travels to Orlando, Florida to train at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.

Graduates have gone on to play at Princeton University, Hamilton College, Dartmouth College, Trinity College, Bates College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Bryant University (D1) and most recently Brandeis University.
