Player of the Week: Keyana Prescott

Keyana Prescott

Keyana Prescott scored 33 points this year on Lake Region’s successful indoor track & field team.

“Keyana scores mainly in the hurdles and pole vault.  Recently, she cleared 6’6” (in the pole vault) to break the school record,” Lake Region Coach Mark Snow said. “She accomplished this while practicing only runway approaches and some plant drills.  Her sole legitimate ‘pole vault practice’ each week is at the meet while competing!”

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

Why did you choose to play this sport? I chose to do indoor track & field because the sport is about setting personal records and doing the best you can, as well as the team as a whole.

What is the most difficult part of the sport? I believe that the most difficult part of track is staying motivated to do your very best. Encouragement from your teammates and coaches is key.

What do you enjoy the most about the sport? The thing I enjoy the most about track is that the effort you put into practices pays off and shows at the meet.

What do you feel you need to work on? I would like to improve on my personal record in pole vault because I want to beat the school record again.

Why is teamwork important? In all sports, everyone plays a role in leading a team to success. In track, teamwork is important because we all support one another to do our best, which in turn will make the entire team successful.

What is the biggest impact your coach(es) have had on you? Coach Snow and Coach Caron have pushed me in pole vault and encouraged me to do better every week. Coach Dors has taught me to never give up. He always tells me that the only thing holding me back is between my ears.

How do you want people to view you as an athlete? I would like people to view me as a hardworking and dedicated athlete. I want people to know that I gave every sport my all.

Ten years from now, when you look back on your high school sports career, what do you think you will remember most? When I look back on my high school sports career, I think I will remember all of the new friends I made and the memories with my teams.
