Player of the Week: Ayden Foster

Ayden Foster

Ayden Foster stepped up big for the Lake Region varsity boys’ lacrosse team this past week by volunteering to play goalie when the starting goalie was injured just before the Gray-New Gloucester game.

“Goaltending has been a need for the past few years and filling the position has been difficult,” Laker Head Coach Josh Plowman said. “There are a lot of natural characteristics that make up a good goalie that cannot be taught and Ayden has them.”

Ayden volunteered after practice the day before the game and first starting practicing at his house before the game. He recorded eight saves on 15 shots and “has been vastly improving since,” Coach Plowman added.

In recognition of his hard work, dedication and commitment to his team, Ayden has been selected as the Lake Region Athletic Boosters and Hancock Lumber Player of the Week.

Athletes selected for this honor receive a specially-designed T-shirt donated by Hancock Lumber.
