Player of the Week: Clark Sulloway

There are skiers who always live on the edge.

There are skiers who play it safe

Clark Sulloway is somewhere in between.

“Over the past four years, Clark has shown dedication to the alpine ski team, consistently placing for the team,” Lake Region varsity alpine ski coaches Jaime Fontaine and Charlie O’Brien said. “He is a good student and excellent athlete. This year, Clark has taken on a leadership role with the younger team members and works to help them improve their technique. He is a positive role model and an asset to the team.”

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Clark 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.
