Athlete of the Week – Caroline Park


BELVIDERE – Belvidere North senior tennis player Caroline Park is our new WREX Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Rock Valley College. Park makes her third career trip to state this week after qualifying at Sectionals last weekend. She knows the level of competition keeps getting tougher.

“If you’re playing against high level players like you will at state, you have to think more aggressively,” Park said. “If you just get the ball in, they’ll probably whip it.”

Park keeps a balanced approach and mentality heading into her final tournament with the Blue Thunder.

“Now I’m just seeing it as more of a game, that’s all it is, it’s just a game and high school tennis,” Park said. “Whatever happens, it’s going to be okay.”

Park has represented herself and her program well throughout the past four years, so she’ll do it one more time this weekend at state.
