Led her team to a 25-3 overall record and the first league title since 1987. The Bulldogs finished undefeated in league at 14-0. Brooks had a 25-3 record with 23 complete games, 21 shutouts,  309 strikeouts and 0.78 era. At the plate she led BHS in batting average (.526), runs (42), hits (40), RBI’s (35) and home runs (12).

“Caitlyn is a coaches’ dream. She is a winner and a great leader. She’s competitive and she wants to show she is the best out there,” Burbank coach Nicole Drabecki said. “In my opinion, I think she is actually the best pitcher in the country. She is only 16 years old and she has room to grow. The sky is the limit with her. I’m so grateful to have her in my program. She has an excellent work ethic. She puts in the time and that is how you become great.”
