This week's "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete in the Week" has put a few miles on his car this school year. Congratulations our latest winner, senior swimmer Mathew Arthur from Swink.
Swink doesn't have a swim team so Mathew drove to Pueblo several times a week to practice and compete with the Pueblo County swim team. And he's qualified for this weekend's state swim meet in all eleven events.
Mathew also is a standout in the classroom. Not only is he the co-valedictorian at Swink, Mathew was captain of the Knowledge Bowl team that was runner-up at state and he was on the Math Bowl team that came in second at CSU-Pueblo math day.
As the school year winds down don't forget to nominate your favorite athlete for out weekly "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week" award. We announce a new winner every Tuesday on News First 5 at 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
