It's been a pretty successful year in the Brooks household as far as sports are concerned.
In the fall season, senior Tyler Brooks was named the Pacific League Player of the Year in girls' volleyball at Burbank High. Not to be outdone, her little sister, Caitlyn, earned her own accolades during the softball season.
A force as a pitcher as well as a terror at the plate, Caitlyn Books, a sophomore, was recognized as this season's Pacific League Player of the Year.
"When my sister found out that I won it she was so excited for me," Caitlyn Brooks said. "She's my older sister so I've always looked up to her. And she's always been so supportive of me in everything that I do.
"But it's kind of cool having both awards in our family."
Brooks led a group of 12 local players — seven from Burbank and five from Burroughs — to earn all-league softball accolades.
