Player of the Week: Hannah Cutting

By Wayne E. Rivet

Hannah Cutting isn’t one to make a lot of noise, but she certainly makes her presence felt.

An anchor in the midfield, Hannah was also a threat in the scoring circle by unloading hard drives, as was on display in the season finale last week as she drilled a drive from the top of the arc as the Lake Region field hockey team blanked Yarmouth 3-0.

“Hannah is a very dedicated athlete who has the skills and the ability to get the job done. She works very hard in whatever position we put her in,” LR Coach Dagny Leland said. “She has a kind spirit, but loves the competition as well. Hannah has developed into a class act of an athlete and hopefully she will continue that throughout her senior year in the sports she chooses to play.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Hannah 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, and a $25 gift certificate to Salon at 616 in Casco.
