BERKLEIGH BROGAN

Okemos senior

Tops in Silver, Blue: Brogan’s 119 assists and 13 aces helped Okemos win the Silver Division title at Saturday’s Portage Northern Invitational. The 5-foot-8 setter compiled another 22 assists along with 18 digs on Tuesday as Okemos won 25-19, 25-20, 25-20 at third-place Holt to remain in a tie for first place in the CAAC Blue with East Lansing at 5-0. Brogan, a third-year varsity player who made honorable mention all-league in 2011, has helped the Chiefs to a 19-6-5 record.

From coach Jamie Ianni: “Berkleigh is an amazing young lady who serves as one of this year’s team captains. B comes to practice every day with a passion for our sport unmatched by anyone that I have ever coached. She exemplifies what a spirited and positive leader should be! She has a very special and unique gift of mentoring those around her — both on the court and in the community. She is patient and kind and is well-respected by all that come in contact with her.”
