Player of the Week: Alice Sanborn

By Wayne E. Rivet
Staff Writer

Alice Sanborn is a “spit fire” out on the field.

“She stays low and tackles any player and usually comes out with the ball,” Lake Region varsity field hockey coach Dagny Leland said. “Alice has a great attitude about this year and has improved immensely with her knowledge of the game as well her attacking skills. We love watching her go in for a tackle and come out with the ball. A great player to have on your forward line.”

Alice has been one of the Laker’s leading scorers this season, and has been selected as this week’s Hancock Lumber Player of the Week. Selection was based on Alice’s strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship.

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.
