Pearland’s Brooke Botkin is one of the best players who has ever worn a Pearland volleyball uniform.
The four-year starter has rewritten every hitting statistic in the Pearland record books, and she’s well beyond the 2,200 kill mark, shattering the old record by more than 700.
The accolades have been endless with the most recent having Botkin named the Texas Girls Coaches Association 6A Player of the Year.
Botkin is a three-time All-State selection by the TGCA and the Texas Sports Writers Association and a two-time Greater Houston Volleyball Pre-season Player of the Year in addition to numerous national honors.
The Lady Oiler standout will play for USC next fall, but graduates in December so she’ll head to Los Angeles in early 2017.
“She is the best six-rotation player we’ve had in the history of the school,” head coach John Turner said. “Malorie (Pardo) was an incredible player, but what Brooke brings to the table with her blocking ability, digging, aces, setting, and of course, the kills, she’s just surpassed everyone.”
Botkin’s numbers are mind-boggling during her four-year high school career. She will no doubt be a force at the next level at the University of Southern California.
Among her four-year career statistics, Botkin registered 2,155 kills, 147 blocks, 1,301 digs, and 134 aces.
