Cheerleading offers Alexis Guzman a chance to show everyone the type of person she is.

“Alexis is an asset to out team in many ways. She is a natural talent, however she is always working hard to improve her skills. Her dedication to her sport is amazing. She even took the initiative to run in a four-mile race over the summer to help raise funds for her team,” Lake Region varsity cheerleading coach Nicole Muse. “Anytime she is asked to help, she is more than willing, and many times takes it upon herself to do things that need to be done without being asked. She is always pushing herself and her teammates to do their best. She is truly a pleasure to have as a cheerleader and I look forward to working with her for the next 2 1/2 years.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Alexis 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, and a $25 gift certificate to Salon at 616 in Casco.
