Player of the Week: Colin Bridge-Koenigsberg

Because he is so dedicated to indoor track, Colin Bridge-Koenigsberg makes himself and his teammates better.

“Colin deserves recognition for his work with the throwers and his leadership. He is often at our 6 a.m. practices leading the throwers through their workout,” LR Coach Mark Snow said. “We have not had any meets this year, but last season Colin demonstrated great sportsmanship while competing in any event the team needed. I expect he will do the same this year. His teammates will learn a lot from his dedication to the team.”

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