For the second straight week the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week' is a hurdler. Last week Wasson's Trevor Brown received the honor. This week the award goes to Cheyenne Mountain senior Catherine "Kita" Alvares.
Kita has won every hurdling race she's participated in this year. Two years ago she fractured her right arm when she hit a hurdle but she's bounced back from that mishap to become a leader and in inspiration to her teammates. Recently she signed a letter of intent for a track and academic scholarship at St. Louis University.
In the classroom,"Kita" carries a 4.122 grade point average and is an honor student.
