Player of the Week: Aisley Sturk

Aisley Sturk

As a senior guard on the Lake Region varsity basketball team, Aisley Sturk is a tireless worker, possesses a great attitude, and her coachability is off the charts.

“Aisley is a very selfless student-athlete who truly understands the concept of putting Team before all other motives,” Lake Region varsity girls’ basketball coach Paul True said. “She truly loves her teammates and makes all of us around her, a better person. In a nutshell, these qualities have earned her the LRGB Player of the Week.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Aisley is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.”

Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
