The high school sports season has ended but News First 5 is not finished honoring some of our top local athletes. And this week we pay tribute to the hard-working and sometimes unsung cheerleaders.
This week's "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week" is Coronado senior cheerleader Alysha McKibben. Alysha has been on the cheerleading squad since her freshman year and is a two-time captain. This past year she was named the team's Most Valuable Player.
Alysha is also a standout in the classroom and in her spare time works as a lifeguard and swim instructor at the Cottonwood Creek pool.
We'll announce the school year's final winner next Tuesday and then News First 5 will introduce something special for the summer - a segment we call the "Little Athlete of the Week."
