This weeks Athlete of the Week is Anna Tucker. Anna is a two sport standout at Lewis County High School currently providing the Maids Volleyball team with a strong net-front presence and very much looking forward to basketball season.
Tucker, a senior at LCHS, began her journey in athletics in sixth grade when she took up volleyball and basketball.
“Sports have taught me to keep a good mentality and not get frustrated,” Tucker said of the lessons that she has learned on both the volleyball and basketball courts.
Anna’s favorite subject is English, and she plans to attend college after graduation, but is unsure if she’ll play sports at a collegiate level.
“Anna is such an asset to our team, at the net with her power hits, and blocking ability, and in the back row with her serves and passing. When Anna gets a power kill its a spark for the whole team,” LCHS volleyball coach Julie Oldaker said of Tucker’s contributions on the volleyball court.
Tucker credits her grandfather David Blake for helping her in her sports career and in life by always offering his full support.
When not playing sports Anna enjoys hanging out with her friends.
