Evan won five of his matches, demonstrated a strong work ethic and was dependable. A very good choice for player of the week. He is respected by all his teammates.”

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