Devynn Turner

If opposing teams are to score a goal, they need to find a way either through or around Devynn Turner.
Devynn is a junior back playing in the sweeper position for the Lake Region varsity girls’ soccer team.
“She is a very dedicated and hard-working player who is a major contributor to our overall team success by providing defensive stability in front of the keeper,” Laker Coach Harvey Toews said. “Devynn is very committed to the game of soccer, having played for the LRSC travel program for years and during indoor sessions, as well. She is providing valuable leadership to our team and is the glue for our back line during games.”
Coach Toews said Devynn is focused on team success and is a terrific representative for Lake Region High School.
“She has done a wonderful job of mentoring younger players through her work at the LRHS summer soccer camp program for girls for the past three years,” he said.
In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Devynn 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.

Q. Best piece of advice you have received? “Rub some dirt on it,” — Coach Juneau.
Q. Who is your biggest fan? My biggest fan is my mom! She is a mother of four and still finds time to go to every game. She always supports me and I couldn’t ask for more.
Q. I know I have had a good sports day when…I’ve worked my hardest and left everything on the field.
Q. What is your favorite sport? Soccer is my favorite sport. I love it because for those 80 minutes of game time, I block everything out and just play. I’ve never been able to do that.
Q. If I could change one thing about myself as an athlete, I would change…My speed. I wish I could be faster.
Q. What qualities make for a good teammate? A good teammate is someone who puts the team before themselves and supports every other teammate.
Q. What do you believe you bring to your team? I bring a positive attitude to the team along with a strong defensive mind.
Q. What characteristics do you feel make for a good coach? It’s hard to say. A coach should push you and be hard on you to improve, but a coach should also be kind, understanding and helpful. That’s why I am so grateful for my four coaches. They each bring a different aspect to the team and each of them has become like a father to me.
