Elysha Bosworth has emerged as another “coach” for the Lake Region varsity indoor track team.

“Elysha has been a good role model for our sprinters. She is excellent at demonstrating the drills. She has taken to the new exercises, drills and concepts extremely well. She helps her teammates,” LR Coach Mark Snow said. “She is always able to lead a group when I need her to. She has been a great counselor at our summer camp for many years.”

In recognition of her dedication, work ethic, coachability, academic standing and good sportsmanship, Elysha is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her contributions to both team and school. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber, and a $25 gift certificate to Salon at 616 in Casco.
