Isabelle Edwards

Isabelle Edwards does some of her best work on the volleyball court at the net.

“Isabelle has done a stupendous job at the net, with both offense and defense!” Lake Region Coach Ryan Shible said. “In our last match against Portland High School, Isabelle contributed greatly to our win, with five kills and two blocks. Isabelle also did a great job on serve receive, with seven digs, which demonstrates that she can play all around the net with confidence and results!”

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