Player of the Week: Sarah Curley

Sarah Curley has proven herself to be an extremely strong member of the Lake Region varsity cheerleading team and a positive role model for those new to the sport.

“As an experienced varsity cheerleader, she has continued to show her ability to help her teammates learn the sport, and be dedicated no matter what is going on outside of practice. She always keeps a smile on her face,” said her coaches, Nicole Muise, Ashleigh London and Darcie Kent. “This season, she has had one of the strongest attendances in both practices and games. Sarah has been someone we (coaches) have come to rely on. We have all been very proud of how far she has come and how hard she has worked to get there. That’s why we have chosen her as this week’s Player of the Week.”

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Sarah 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, and a $25 gift certificate to Salon at 616 in Casco.
