This week our 1590 WAKR Female Student Athlete of the Week is Emily Dente, a junior soccer player from Copley High School.
As a team captain, Dente says her leadership on the pitch is both vocal and by example.
“I’m very vocal on the field,” she says. I play center back, so I can see everything.”
Her head soccer coach Wally Senk echoed that sentiment.
"Emily is a bonafide competitor with an innate ability to lead. She doesn't have an off-switch, embracing the grind and paying attention to the little things that make her and her teammates better,” he said.
Dente is a multi-sport athlete playing soccer, basketball, and track for the Indians.
Away from the field, Senk said she maintains that focus and intensity in the classroom as well.
“Emmy's determination, perseverance, and self-motivation are contagious and evident on the field as well as in the classroom, where she keeps her GPA above 4.0."
Emily comes from an athletic family as her dad Mark, is the boys and girls basketball coach at Copley High, and also has two brothers in sports.
“I really like it (being in an athletic family)because we all support each other,” she said.
Upon graduation in the spring of 2020, Emily plans on studying pediatric nursing.
We wish Emily the best in all of her future endeavors.
This week our 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete of the Week is senior football player Tyler Lenke of Copley High School.
Lenke said he got into football at an early age, and says it’s a lot of fun getting to work with his coaches and teammates day in and day out.
“There’s times, but there’s a lot of good times, and you just make the best of it,” he said. Tyler’s head coach Scott Chouinard, talked about his work ethic on the field. “Tyler Lenke is a three year starter and captain of our 2018 football team,” Chouinard explained. “He has played Offensive Line and Defensive Line and has been one of our most consistent players for the past three years.”
Away from the gridiron, Lenke also exhibits leadership, according to Coach Chouinard. “Off the field he is a kind and thoughtful individual who is always willing to help teachers and fellow students and he represents the best of Copley High School in his actions and his performance on the football field and in the hallways.”
Tyler has played every position along the offensive line during his time at Copley, and as a captain, that versatility gives him insight and credibility with his teammates, especially his mates along the line. “When you’ve played every position along the line, you get to know what everyone’s supposed to do, and if someone needs help, you know exactly what to do, and you help them.”
Upon graduation in the spring, Tyler plans on attending college and mechanical engineering could be a possible course of study. We wish Tyler the best in all of his future endeavors.
