Player of the Week: Ellery Hunt

Ellery Hunt

Ellery Hunt was willing to take a chance on competing in indoor track & field, and it proved to be a very good decision.

“Ellery has been an indoor stalwart since her freshman year, and has been open to learning and understanding shot-put throwing techniques from the start, which is evident from her continued improvement in the event,” Lake Region Coach Dana Caron said. “Ellery is also a team leader. She can be relied on to help set up and lead drills, gather equipment, and assist newer teammates. I’m extremely happy to nominate Ellery for Player of the Week!”

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