LELAND, NC (WECT) – North Brunswick tennis player ReBecca Lindsey is this week's WECT Athlete of the Week.
Being the Athlete of the Week isn't always about one's on the field performance. Lindsey is an all "A" student and has battled health issues that have kept her from practicing every day. "One day at practice I told her to just stand by and watch, but when I had turned around she had grabbed a racket and was on the court" said North Brunswick head coach Jonathan Pease.
"Her eagerness and desire to play and be a part of the team means more to me than her skill level and that is why I think she deserves to be the athlete of the week" said head coach Jonathan Pease. On the season Lindsey is 0-1 in matches.
Tune in to WECT News every Wednesday at 6pm and 11pm to see who will be the WECT Athlete of the Week.
