This week’s Athlete of the Week is Emma Cayton. Cayton is a sophomore who participates in soccer, softball, and basketball at LCHS, and finds benefits and challenges in playing multiple sports.
Cayton noted that playing multiple sports helped combat the burnout sometimes associated with concentrating on a single sport, and that it allowed her to stay in shape year round. She added that its sometimes a challenge to feel committed to all three sports, but she combats that by keeping her focus on the current season.
The current sport for Emma is basketball where she plays guard, and looks to help the Maids to a successful season. Maids Head Coach Ben Whetsell mentioned Cayton among players returning for the upcoming season who he expects to be leaders on a young team.
When not playing or practicing for sports Emma enjoys watching movies, and counts movies from the 1990s among her favorites including “10 Things I Hate About You.”
