Jordan Turner

 

Senior forward Jordan Turner is an outstanding athlete who has had a tremendous impact on the Lake Region varsity girls’ basketball team.

“Her work ethic and attitude have been outstanding, which has earned her our choice for Player of the Week,” Laker Head Coach Paul True said. “On the court, Jordan’s versatility is a huge plus for us. She can defend a post player or a guard on the defensive end, and she can play inside or out on the offensive end. Her versatility is extremely valuable.”

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