Kasey Wentworth

Kasey Wentworth

Kasey Wentworth is one of the most spirited people Coach Alexis Guzman has met!

“Though we started this season late, Kasey knew someone needed to step up and make a huge effort to get things started. Kasey took it upon herself to get together the girls that were interested in cheering and start teaching them our sideline cheers!” said Coach Guzman, in her first year as a varsity cheering coach at Lake Region. “She comes to practice everyday with a smile on her face ready to work! It doesn’t matter if she’s had a rough day at school, is exhausted from working the night before or has an injuring that is trying to slow her down! This senior has definitely stepped her game up and wants this team to do great things!”

Coach Guzman can count on Kasey to let her know “what’s going on in the other girls’ heads.

“She stays after just about every practice with questions for me and answers to my questions! I couldn’t ask for a more spirited and active person to be such an outstanding leader for our team!” Coach Guzman said. “I would like to thank Kasey for being the rock of this team and wish her luck with whatever the future has in store for her!”

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