Player of the Week: Molly Christensen

Molly Christensen

Molly Christensen

Freshman Molly Christensen is making an impact in her first year playing lacrosse.

“Molly is a tremendous athlete and one of the most coachable girls I have worked with,” Lake Region junior varsity girls’ lacrosse Coach Dave Keenan said. “She is constantly striving to improve her game.” Molly is always a threat on offense, but it is her play on the defensive side of the field that has made her so valuable to the Lakers.

“From her midfield position, Molly is usually the first one back on defense and has been effective in disrupting the other teams’ fast break attempts,” Coach Keenan said.

When it came time to select his “Player of the Week,” Coach Keenan was faced with a tough decision.

“This was a tough choice because so many girls on the team have worked hard and contributed so much to our lacrosse program (which is in its first year at the high school level),” the coach said. “Molly’s positive attitude, work ethic and willingness to do whatever is asked of her are just a few of the reasons that make her a great choice for Player of the Week.”

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