Mark MacDougall has been a strong captain for the Lake Region varsity cross-country team this fall because of his strong work ethic and dedication to the sport.

“Mark is always there for us and the team. He can always be counted on to do what is expected of him,” Lake Region Coach Dan Dors said. “He always gives 100% in practice and at the meets. Mark is a person of great responsibility and has been a pleasure to coach.”

In recognition of his strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Mark 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.
