Chatham-Kent’s Brooke Turner, Making CK Proud
Chatham-Kent sends athletes across Ontario, Canada, and the globe each year to compete athletically.
Sponsored by baCK to Chatham-Kent, we’ll be featuring local athletes who have left Chatham-Kent, and are proudly representing our community. We hope many of these athletic ambassadors for our community someday come baCK to call Chatham-Kent home.
This week, we feature Blenheim’s Brooke Turner, who is a member of the Mohawk College women’s basketball team. Prior to Mohawk, Turner played club basketball for the Wallaceburg Airhawks.
Here are Brooke’s responses to our baCK to Chatham-Kent athletes interview:
1. Can you describe what support you’ve felt from your hometown/ Chatham-Kent while you’ve been away?
I have had an overwhelming amount of support while being away. This goes for my family, friends and community. I am constantly being in touch with many people from my hometown which is a big support
2. What do you enjoy about coming home to visit?
One thing I enjoy most about coming home to visit is seeing my family and friends. When I first moved up to Hamilton last year it was my first time ever being away from my family and friends for such a long period of time, so coming home was like a breath of fresh air to see everyone.
3. Would you consider making Chatham-Kent home again some day?
There is a possibility. I am not really sure just yet, since I do have a few years of post secondary school a head of me, but there is a possibility of me coming back down this way after school.
4. What advice would you give to young athletes baCK home in Chatham-Kent?
The advice I would like to give to young athletes back home is enjoy it. Enjoy every minute of your sport, no matter how hard it is, don’t forget why you fell in love with the sport and always make the best of the things. Push yourself.
