Brooklin Bain has done what hasn’t been done in 10 years at Comanche High School as she was named All-State in softball announced by the Oklahoma High School Fast Pitch Coaches Association.
In her senior season, the Lady Indians pitcher and shortstop had a batting average of .503 and hit 13 home runs and drove in 33 while stealing 42 bases and had an on-base percentage of .636 for the year.
One of two pitchers for the Lady Indians this year, Bain had a record of 12-4 and had a fielding percentage of 95 percent leading the Lady Indians to 22 wins on the 2019 season.
Lady Indians coach Aaron Minor has his first All-State member as a head coach and knows it will be hard to replace her as a member of Comanche.
"Brooklin is a rare talent. She cannot be replaced. I am very proud of all her accomplishments, and all-state is much deserved," Minor said. "She means so much to this program and to me, and I couldn't be more excited for her future."
Bain has been part of the Lady Indians softball team her entire four years where Comanche had 20 plus victories and she said it was a big honor to be named to All-State and was happy to hear of her selection.
“It is an incredible honor to receive. Ever since I was a freshman and even younger it has been a goal of mine to get All-State,” Bain said. “It is kind of incredibly hard to put in all the work, but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and coaches. The past years have been very successful and this year we had an incredible group of girls that were amazing and kind of pushed me to be my best.”
Committed to Oklahoma Christian University, Bain will have one final time to play for Comanche in the All-State game this next summer and she said that she can’t wait to represent her school.
“Being able to represent my school in it is incredible because my school is a big part and this is a big community and family,” Bain said. “Being able to represent them one last time is an amazing feeling and it is so cool.”
Going straight into basketball season, Bain in her senior season has a goal of being like her mother and assistant coach who was a three sport All-State selection and said both her and mother were happy to share several memories of the 2019 season.
“I think my best memory is probably the Colorado trip we took this year. It was not only we got to play softball but it was an incredible team bonding and we got to know the girls more and we just bonded at a different level we have before,” Bain said. “I would like to thank my coaches: Coach Minor and Coach Bain they have been an incredible part of my career and pushing me to be the best and never give up. She was extremely happy and told me I wasn’t going to get it because Coach Minor had told us how hard it was to get All-State in softball. So she prepared herself and me to not make it but when she found out the news she was so excited and thought it was an amazing honor to have.”
