Player of the Week: Kate Cutting

Kate Cutting

Kate Cutting was such a joy to have on the track & field team, both as an athlete and an individual, according to her coaches, Dana Caron and Mark Snow.

“She has been willing to try anything in this, her first season in track & field, and has been able to show success in these new areas, as well,” Coach Caron said. “I am extremely pleased that Kate decided to join our team this year.”

As a senior, Kate decided this spring to make a change. She chose track & field. Kate scored consistently in the javelin and also competed in the discus and shot put.

“It has been impressive for us to see her learn all three throws so quickly,” Coach Snow said. “She is a great teammate and has offered, without hesitation, to run a leg on the 4x400m and 4x800m relay teams when needed.  Giving your full effort to the team, doing whatever the team needs, and having fun while doing it, is what being a Laker is about. Kate epitomizes that attitude and those qualities.”

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