Player of the week: Grace Farrington

SP 17 grace farringtonGrace Farrington is proving to be a quick learner on the lacrosse field.

Playing for just the second year, Grace is showing she has a knack for the game, according to Coach Dave Keenan.

“Grace is one of our most improved and spirited players,” Coach Keenan said. “She has scored multiple goals in our first two games and is one of our top scorers on attack. She has grown in confidence and ability under Coach Bush’s offense. She plays a key role in our transition game initiated by our strong defense and very talented group of midfielders.”

Only a sophomore, Grace has a promising future in lacrosse, Coach Keenan added.

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