WRMJ spoke with 2023 Rockridge High School graduate Payton Brown Thursday. Brown was named a first team All-American softball player by MaxPreps earlier this month.

She hit an IHSA single-season record 27 home runs in 2023 and finished with a .578 batting average, 58 RBI, and 77 runs to help lead the Rockets (38-1) to their third consecutive state championship. Her 54 career home runs are tied for fourth in IHSA history.

Her softball career will continue at Illinois State University.
