The Enterprise reports that Glen Lake senior Marissa Treece was named Michigan Female High School Athlete of the Year by the Detroit Athletic Club. Treece is a track and cross country star for the Lakers but in giving the award, the DAC is recognizing more than just athletic prowess:
Treece earned the award not just because of her athletics. She has a 3.97 grade point average and participates in Project Heroes and Pals, where older students are paired with grade school students in a mentoring program. She is also very active in the county 4-H program, raising champion steers and pigs and some sheep.
This is the second consecutive year that a Leelanau County female athlete received the honor – Lelandâ€™s Alisha Glass received the award last year.
