On Wednesday, April 28, Mansfield Lady Tiger, Brooke Wright, signed her letter of intent to play volleyball at Iowa Lakes Community College. “I’m excited to be around a new environment, meet new people, and make lasting memories,” Wright stated. “I know that playing collegiate ball is something that not everybody has the opportunity to do, so I am extremely grateful that I am able to do so! I’m hoping to make great friends while playing one of the sports I love. I know our Lady Tiger program will be losing me as a captain and leader, and I plan to bring those same qualities with me this fall. I believe that the Lady Tigers will continue to excel with such talent. I am so blessed to have this wonderful opportunity!”
Brooke finished her final high school volleyball season with the Lady Tigers undefeated 21-0 overall, 14-0 in conference plus a 2020 2A State Volleyball Championship to boot. Her career stats for grades 10-12 were 793 Kills, 141 Aces, and 120 Blocks. Brooke’s biggest supporter and number one fan, mom Alana Hattabaugh, expressed this about her daughter. “I’ve heard that good things happen to good people. Brooke exemplifies this statement. She has had several offers to play collegiate volleyball and did not take this decision lightly. I am beyond proud of her many accomplishments and who she is as a person. I believe she is most deserving of this opportunity and I am excited about her next adventure.”
Congratulations Brooke from Resident Press and your community on this incredible achievement. Your future is bright and we can not wait to follow you on this new volleyball journey!
