Centennial 3-sport star is Athlete of the Week

This week's Loaf N' Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week is a three sport star and her long term goal is to help other athletes with sports injuries.

Pueblo Centennial junior Cydney Carter was just named a South Central League honorable mention after leading the Bulldogs volleyball team to 4A Regionals.

She also plays varsity basketball and is on the varsity track team.

Cydney is a member of Pueblo's Health Academy, an accelerated medical program. She says she wants to be an athletic trainer after college.

Get this: Cydney is one of 13 kids and one of five at her house. Her parents say she's a great role model for the younger children.
