Player of the Week: Mason Kluge-Edwards

By Wayne E. Rivet

Some athletes like to stay in their comfort level.

Others are a little more daring. They are willing to “give it a try” regardless of whether they will succeed or fail.

Mason Kluge-Edwards fits the latter

“Mason is willing to learn any event. He listens to our technical advice and applies it to his events,” Lake Region varsity indoor track Coach Mark Snow said. “He always gives a full effort. His enthusiasm is contagious.”

In recognition of his dedication, work ethic, coachability, academic standing and good sportsmanship, Mason is this week’s Boosters and Hancock Lumber “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Lake Region athlete is recognized for his/her contributions to both team and school. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by Hancock Lumber, and a $25 gift certificate to Salon at 616 in Casco.
