Brooke Peterson has always been a Saskatchewan girl.

In her four years here, the Weyburn native has made a tremendous impact on the team with her passion and intensity on the court.

After head coach Nolan Weinmaster showed interest in her skills, Peterson was attracted to the Christian environment available along with the business program. The close to home location was a strong influence on her decision to come to Briercrest.

In her second year as captain, Peterson continues to prove to be a strong servant leader. She finds that her biggest strengths are her optimistic attitude and work ethic. Her genuine love for people is easily recognized on and off the court.

What makes the team so successful, according to Peterson, is the sense of family that is present on the team, alongside the genuine love the girls have for one another.

Peterson has made many great memories, but her favourite moment so far was “returning from Christmas break and finding our team to be excited to be back together, re-energized, more enthusiastic, and more focused than ever on finishing this season strong and achieving our goal of becoming ACAC and CCAA national champions.”

Peterson, in her final year, hopes to lead the team to winning the ACAC and CCAA championships, along the way helping herself and the team to achieve their potential. As a student, she is graduating with a degree in the business administration program and looking forward to what this will bring to her future.

“After Briercrest I want to start a career in business. I hope this will include many different business endeavors and investments. If nothing was holding me back I would start and finance a nursing home with a high standard of patient care. I enjoy visiting with seniors and learning from their life experiences.”

Until then, Peterson will continue to shine and bring her own experience to the team. Briercrest wishes you the best of luck!!
