Kaytlyn Terry

Kaytlyn Terry is the consummate teammate.

“Kaytlyn is so supportive of everyone on the (girls’ basketball) team. She is kind (sometimes too kind), works hard and encourages others,” said Lake Region Head Coach Paul True. “In all of my years of coaching, I would be hard pressed to find a better individual and teammate than Kaytlyn (a senior forward). She really has no idea how valuable she is to our program.”

Coach True added, “It is with great pleasure that we acknowledge Kaytlyn as our Player of the Week and remind others how valuable great teammates can be in the culture of your program.”

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