Mount Pleasant's Kate Walker is this week's Delaware Sports Zone Athlete of the Week.

Walker helped the Green Knights finish their season with a 12-3 record while earning the accolade of the 2015 Field Hockey Player of the Year.

Walker expresses much gratitude toward Mount Pleasant and her team.

"It's amazing. It's a true honor. I couldn't be more thankful for Mount Pleasant and the support they've given me. They've set the team up for me with something great."

Head Coach Peter Miesel hopes that they younger girls are inspired by Walker's work ethic:

"I hope if they pick up anything, it's the fact that if you continue to work hard, you can achieve."

Her advice to the new generation of Green Knights:

"I think to work hard, you have endless possibilities here. Just never lose hope. And that should do it."

Walker continues her field hockey career as she joins the squad at the University of Michigan next fall.
