Player of the Week: Allison Clark

By Wayne E. Rivet

Allison Clark is shaping up to be one of the most consistent performers on the Lake Region varsity girls’ basketball team.

“Allison’s work ethic has improved tremendously and she is the best shooter in our program,” Lake Region Coach Paul True said. “You can see Allison’s confidence grow with each opportunity on the floor.”

Coach True says Allison’s ability to knock down outside shots, including chances when the game is on the line, is critical for the Lakers, who will utilize her ability to stretch the defense.

“Her ability to hit big shots became even more evident in the last preseason game against Waynflete when she drained a deep 3 from the corner with 10 seconds left to play in regulation to send the game into overtime,” Coach True said. “For her outstanding effort and attitude, the coaching staff has selected Allison as their choice for Player of the Week.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Allison 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.
