Loudoun County, Va. – In an effort to better recognize student-athletes who positively affect high school sports in Loudoun County, Power Train and LoCoSports have teamed up to announce Loudoun Valley High School junior Tanner Newport as the Power Train and LoCoSports Athlete of the Month for April 2018.
Newport led the Vikings to a 10-0 April, while posting four shutouts and allowing just five goals.
“He makes jaw dropping saves that inspire the boys and keeps the mood light and fun,” Loudoun Valley assistant coach Jesse Sheehan said.
Off to one the best starts in school history, Newport and the Vikings have lost just a single game this spring and sit in the driver’s seat of the Dulles District. While leading the defensive effort in the net for Loudoun Valley, Newport continues to help his teammates improve day in and day out.
“He helps our other keepers improve,” Sheehan said. “His talent has grown through his encouragement by his family and friends and the staff at LVHS.”
The Power Train and LoCoSports Athlete of the Month is selected from nominations based on student-athletes having great success, hustle, work ethic, attitude and heart.
Power Train invites all athletes and teammates of the month to either of their Loudoun locations for a free month of training.
