Its another day of basketball practice for Riverheads High School senior Lauren Clymore. Coach Dickie Bell says, she may not be saying much, but she's been leading that way for four years, "She has a quiet leadership style, she s not a vocal person and she s not the cheerleading type, but she s the finest example that you ll ever see of leading by example.
Lymore is captain of the basketball team, but she also has started on the soccer team all four years.she made the first team all district last year. Clymore says its not just the fun of the competition that has kept her a busy athlete in high school its her team mates that keep her going. "Two girls I've played with since I was five, and then in basketball I ve played with them since I ve been 10, us four senoirs" I just don't want it to end, I've enjoyed it so much playing with the same girls."
And when she s not on the court, teachers say Clymore is hitting the books. She 's had to to keep up her rank as 7th in the class and her GPA of 3.8.Clymore is also an officer in the National Honors Society, and managing editor of the yearbook.English teacher Cherie Taylor says thats a lot for any student.but that she says Clymore stays on top by staying ahead of the game. "As managing editor of the yearbook I would find Lauren would already have done things I was worried about getting done, she s always working on pages every minute, making it better."
