There can't be too much hardware left in Topeka. That's after future Lady Saint basketball player Shanise Brooks cleaned house at a recent awards ceremony. Brooks was named the Topeka and Shawnee County Athlete of the Year. She also was named the Outstanding Female Athlete for winter sports. She also received the 2012 Athlete of the Year Award for the Topeka area. Lady Saint coach Toby Wynn is excited to have the forward in green next fall.
Brooks, is a 6’1 forward from Topeka’s Highland Park High School. Brooks was one of the more highly recruited players in the state this season after averaging 15 points per game for Highland Park and being named 1st Team All-State as well as the Topeka Capital Journal Player of the Year. Wynn on Brooks “Shanise was one of the best players in the state of Kansas this past year. She has a lot of physical tools that allow her to be a tough matchup inside, but can also step outside and score from the perimeter. We are really looking forward to having Shanise as a Lady Saint and continuing her playing career here at Seward County.”
