Shea Bonner of Lower Cape May Regional High School is the latest Female Athlete of the Week.

A senior on the girls lacrosse team, Bonner is a starting defender for a Lady Tiger team that qualified for the first Cape-Atlantic League playoff tournament this season. Bonner helped Lower to a 13-5 finish to the regular season, with the state tournament set to begin this week.

Bonner was the driving force behind a mental health awareness event surrounding Lower Cape May’s final home game of the regular season against Our Lady of Mercy Academy. Bonner, who turned 18 this weekend, is set to enroll in a six-year doctorate program occupational therapy at Monmouth University in the fall, concentrating on health studies.
