Player of the Week: Cameron Meserve
Cameron Meserve is indoor track’s version of baseball’s utility fielder — someone capable of performing multiple tasks.
“Cameron runs all distances, from 200 meters to two miles. He gives us many options when planning out a meet,” Lake Region Coach Mark Snow said. “Cameron trains hard and races even harder. He is determined to put everything he has into each race.”
His all-out efforts rub off on the team.
“The team rallies with him and behind him,” Coach Snow added. “Cameron inspires everyone to do their very best. Every coach should be blessed to have such a devoted athlete.”
In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Cameron 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.
