Seventh grader Alexis Hirning is the Aroma Joe’s athlete of the week. The 12-year-old attends Windham Middle School and plays basketball and lacrosse.
Her favorite sports hero is Sarah Assante.
“Alexis is a strong leader for her age. She knows the game well and is a great leader on and off the court. She likes to work hard, but does it while keeping things fun,” said coach Deb LeBel.
Alexis balances school and sports with good time management skills, she said. She will need those skills because she would like to go to college to study law.
As far as teamwork goes, her philosophy is “playing together produces a team win.”
She lives with her parents Alicia and Fred and her brother Logan.
