Demosphere teamed up once again with the Better Sports Club of Arlington to sponsor the Girls Soccer Sportswoman of the Year award at their 59th Annual Awards Banquet which took place on June 3, 2015.

The Better Sports Club is a nonprofit community organization in Arlington, VA founded in 1957 on the principal of promoting “useful citizenship through the medium of sports.” The Club focuses on developing fair play, good sportsmanship, a competitive spirit, and friendship amongst youth athletes.

Their Annual Awards Banquet is held each year to honor Arlington high school student-athletes who have demonstrated an outstanding achievement in academics, character, and athletics.

This year, Better Sports Club honored Lauren Harkes.

“Lauren exemplifies what a student/athlete should be in the way she carries herself both on and off the field – always caring and helping others while maintaining a high level of professionalism.” – HS Coach Alberto Starace

In addition to helping to lead her high school (O’Connell) to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship game this year, Lauren’s senior year also included being named first team All-Conference and first team All-Met. Lauren is heading to Clemson University next year and will continue playing soccer.

Congratulations Lauren, and keep up the good work!
