At the National ODP Camp the 20 2004 players were coached by Sue Ryan from Region I and Kirk Nelson from Region II and played three games against a DA team, an ECNL team, and finally against the 2003 National ODP team. Brooke’s team won all three games as she played center-back. In the third game against the 2003 National ODP team Brooke entered the game with her team down 2-0 and she helped stage a 3-goal come back to win the game 3-2 including a PK goal by Brooke.
