Freshman midfielder Aisley Sturk is quietly becoming a very good lacrosse player.

“Aisley is a talented three-sport athlete and the skills she has developed through soccer and basketball have served her well on the lacrosse field,” said Lake Region varsity girls’ lacrosse coach David Keenan. “Aisley does a tremendous job getting up and down the field.  She is always hustling and is a very hardworking team player.”

Coach Keenan added that “Aisley is also one of the nicest and most coachable girls that Coach Bush and I have had the pleasure of working with.”

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.
