Player of the Week: Christine Morin

Christine Morin

Christine Morin has the kind of character to build a team around, according to Lake Region varsity cross-country coach Dan Dors said.

“Christine won't win many races but through her dedication and commitment to cross-country she has won the respect of the coaches and her teammates,” said Coach Dors of the first year runner. “Christine strives for individual improvement, but also wants to see the team improve. She is always at practice. She is very focused and a very hard worker. She is an excellent team player.”

Coach Dors added, “Christine is a pleasure to coach.”

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

  1. Best piece of advice you have received? I think that I really agree with a quote from Gandhi, “Whatever we do in life is insignificant, but it’s important we do it anyway.” It’s not something that was really said to me, but I think that it stands as a good thing to remember because even if you don’t do something amazing and memorable it’s important we do those things because no one else will.
  2. I know I have had a good sports day when… I feel as though I have worked hard but I have more to show for it than just aches.
  3. What is your favorite sport? I think it’s kind of obvious…cross-country. I’m not coordinated or really good at much else, but I can really work at it and use it to try to escape.
  4. If I could change one thing about myself as an athlete, I would change… I would want to be able to have more ability to really keep going. I think if I really got going steady it would make running easier.
  5. What qualities make for a good teammate? I think a good teammate is encouraging and challenging, but understands you’re not perfect. I think all my teammates are great.
  6. What do you believe you bring to your team? I think right now I’m still pretty new so I won’t be winning anything, but I’m always around to try to provide encouragement.
  7. What characteristics do you feel make for a good coach? Typically, the same things as in a teammate, but they’ll push you because sometimes it’s hard to push yourself.
