Athlete of the Week – Calvin Lisitza
Junior Calvin Lisitza was awarded with Athlete of the Week for the week of December 17.
“I was very shocked and surprised because I wasn’t expecting it,” said Lisitza.
This is Lisitza’s first year as a varsity basketball starter. “I have been playing basketball since I was four years old so to finally be on varsity is super exciting as a player,” said Lisitza. Prior to being on varsity, Calvin played the past two years on JV as a freshman and a sophomore.
“Basketball significantly impacts my life on and off the court,” Lisitza said, “it helps me grow to become a better leader and communicate with others.”
Lisitza’s favorite thing about basketball is the relationships with the team that he can build. “I really like our fight and willingness to compete this year,” said Lisitza.
While playing at McIntosh, Lisitza has had many memorable moments playing with his team. His favorite being against school rival, Starrs’ Mill High School, in a JV game last year. “I scored the winning three pointer.”
By the end of this season, Lisitza hopes to most improve strength and consistency in his three point shots.
“Our goal is to overall make a good run in the state playoffs,” said Lisitza.
