This week’s Duke Automotive-Suffolk News-Herald Player of the Week is a lot of things to the Nansemond-Suffolk Academy softball team. This year alone, senior Brooklyne Carr has been a left fielder, first baseman, second baseman, third baseman and catcher. Lady Saints coach Brittany Wilkins said the only position left on the field that Carr has not played at NSA is pitcher.
“I feel confident putting her pretty much anywhere on that field,” Wilkins said. “She’s just been around the game so long, and she knows it well.” For the Lady Saints, Carr is also an important leader in a variety of ways. Through 12 games, she leads the team in batting average (.639), on-base percentage (.682), runs scored (17) and doubles (11). Her status as an offensive standout for Nansemond-Suffolk is what led to her Player of the Week nomination.
