Player of the Week: Theo Snow

Theo Snow

Theo Snow is a top competitor in the triple jump and shot put.

At a recent meet, he qualified provisionally for the state meet in both evens, and Theo came within 0.03 seconds of qualifying in the hurdles.

“Theo is one of the most versatile members of the team,” Lake Region varsity indoor track & field coach Mark Snow said.

Yet, he is also quite personable.

“Meet officials have appreciated his sportsmanship, one recently calling him a ‘class act.’ He seems to hit it off with almost every opponent he chats with, which is many,” his coach added.

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