Brooke Dunton was a three-sport athlete through her high school career, and was recruited by the soccer coaches to plan goalie in her senior year because the team needed a goaltender. They saw her play softball during her first three years in school and knew she had the talent to fill the team’s needs and they were right. The team won its first Monticello Empire League soccer championship and Dunton was selected to the MEL All-League team and was selected All County Goaltender. Dunton played three years of basketball for Napa High and four years of softball. Her basketball years were successful, but it was on the softball diamond that Dunton excelled. In her freshman year, she was the team’s Most Valuable Player. She hit .422 and drove in 37 runs that year. During the next three years, Dunton was MEL All-League Player each year, Offensive Player of the Year one year and Player of the Year another year. She was on the Napa Register All-County team and the Vallejo TimesHerald All-Region team as a junior, and was the All-County Most Valuable Play as a senior. Dunton was also the quarterback on the Powderpuff football team. As a student leader, Dunton was the NHS Student Body Treasurer one year and was on the Honor Roll for three years. After graduation from Sonoma State, Dunton returned to Napa High as a girl’s basketball coach. She coached the freshman team for four years and the JV team for two years, leading the JV team to a league championship in 2010. She is now a successful business woman in Napa, serving on numerous committees and boards, among which are the Napa Humane Society and Guide Dogs for the Blind. This well-rounded young woman entered the Hall in her first year of eligibility.
