Our 1590 WAKR Male Student Athlete  of the Week is Christian Beckett a senior lacrosse player from CVCA High School.

Christian says he got into lacrosse in his younger years and loves the physical aspect of the sport.
 
“One of my hockey coaches in third grade introduced me to it, and a bunch of my buddies started doing it," he said.
 
"I started playing in fourth grade and have stuck with it ever since."
 
Beckett, a three sport athlete in lacrosse, hockey, and golf also is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is active in the community by helping with his church. 
 
His coach Rob Atwood talked about his leadership on and off the field.
 
“Christian is a great young man from a great family. He is a really good athlete and an even better person,” he said. 
 
“He leads by example, plays hard, and is always dependable.” 
 
 
   
Upon graduation in the spring, Beckett plans on studying Business/Sales and Marketing at Dallas Baptist University, where he will play hockey at the collegiate level. 
 
Our next Female Student Athlete of the Week is Kally Ashton, a senior softball player from CVCA High School.
 
She says her love and appreciation for athletics, especially softball came from her family growing up.
 
"I started out on my brother's baseball team when I was in second grade and hated it," she said with a laugh.
 
“I played softball in fifth grade and just fell in love with  it ever since," she said. 
 
As a captain on the softball team, she says she leads more by example and says the younger players see how she works and tailor that to their game. 
 
Her coach Jeff Johnson talked about her work on and off the field.
 
“Kally has become an amazing softball player. She is our centerfielder but could play anywhere you need her. She is batting over 500 this season, set a school record for doubles last year and has not struck out over the past year and a half,” he said. 
 
“She is very coachable and just fun to be around. She is a great teammate and is more of a quiet leader. She leads by example and by how she carries herself.”
  

  
Ashton is a two sport athlete in both golf and softball. In addition to that, she is a member of the Birdclub. 
 
She says her favorite bird is the Blue Jay, in part to her family being from Canada. 
 
In the community, she enjoys working with her church and tutoring. 
 
Upon graduation in the spring, Kally plans on studying Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati. 
 
We wish Christian and Kally the best in all of their future endeavors.
