Meghan Skarbinski

Meghan Skarbinski has been fully committed to improving her field hockey game this season.

“Meghan committed to the summer program as well as any optional workouts that were available to her. She is truly a ‘workhorse’ out there in practices and games,” Lake Region varsity field hockey coach Pauline Webb said. “She has been willing to play in any position I have put her in without any complaints. She is physically very strong and is playing with so much determination this year; she will definitely make a big impact for this team.”

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