TCA thrower is Athlete of the Week

This week's Loaf ‘n Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week is Hannah Carr of The Classical Academy.

Hannah is a junior thrower on the Titans track and field team. A couple weeks ago, at the Altitude Invitational meet in Fort Collins, she placed second in the discus, and first in the shot put. The shot put throw set a school record of 39'11 ½".

Hannah needs only one more half inch to meet her goal of 40 feet.

"It's a little frustrating just that they didn't just round it," said Hannah. "But, no, it actually kind of motivates me to know that I can throw it. Then it's like a half inch. Just push it a half inch farther."

Her goal is to win state and she's currently the No. 1 shot put thrower in 3A. She's also a standout basketball player and has a 3.75 GPA.
