Written by Travis Sloat

Competitiveness and being part of a team atmosphere is what draws Webbers Falls multi-sport athlete Brooke Wyatt to the court, diamond, and barnyard. 

“I love being a part of a team and working hard all year long,” Wyatt said. “I like the people I meet and the new friendships that are made. Sports make the best memories.” 

Wyatt has helped lead her fast pitch softball team to a conference and district championship in the fall, and is looking to make it to state in slow pitch. She has raised breed championship hogs for the Warrior FFA team, and she’s been a part of a state academic championship basketball team. 

She said this year she wants to focus on being the best teammate she can be. 

“My personal goals for this season are to be an overall good teammate and strengthen my defensive game [in softball],” she said. “As a team we want to work hard, motivate one another and get closer as a team.” 

Stefanie Norman, the slow pitch coach in Webbers Falls, said Wyatt is a joy to be around. 

“She’s a genuinely good person,” Norman said. “She’s involved with several activities other than sports, she’s easy to get along with, and she has great energy that makes people enjoy being around her. She is also a fierce competitor. She takes sports seriously, practicing extra to focus on areas of weakness and to improve her strengths. When she faces difficult situations she listens to her coaches and tries something new or different, even if it means sacrificing something for the betterment of the team.” 

In her free time, Wyatt said she likes to hang out with family and friends, practice softball, and work with her show pigs. She said her go to app on her phone is Messages, because she uses it to communicate with her friends, family, and several groups. 

Wyatt said for her, it all boils down respecting her coaches and her fellow players, and lifting people up when they’re down. 

“On and off the field I try to give encouraging words and build people up when they’re down on themselves,” she said. “I’m always a team player, and sportsmanship is very important to me.”
