Royster gets all-state honors

By Michael Butler

Tallassee High School graduating senior Brooke Royster has been selected to the Alabama Sports Writers Association All-State Softball Team. Royster was a second-team choice on the ASWA Class 5A squad.

The Central Alabama Community College commit was picked as a utility player.

Royster hit a team-leading .430 in 2023 with 55 hits, 6 homeruns and 58 RBIs - also team-best totals. She drew 30 walks and had an on-base percentage of .541.

In addition, Royster pitched in 30 games, throwing 154 innings. She was 14-12 with an ERA of 2.40.

"We're proud of her," THS head coach Pat Love said. "She worked hard all season. She's well deserving. She's meant a lot to our team on the offensive and defensive side."
