Player of the Week: Maggie Luce
Maggie Luce competes in multiple events as a member of the Lake Region varsity indoor track & field team, which takes time and commitment.
“She has balanced it well and found success by breaking personal records in all her events,” Lake Region Coach Mark Snow said. “Maggie is open to advice from peers and coaches, usually with a smile on her face. Her smile is contagious and uplifting to all. She is well-liked by her teammates and her opponents and is a delight to coach.”
In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Maggie 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.
