Widefield swimmer is selected "Athlete of the Week"

For this first time this high school year a swimmer has been named the "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week." Congratulations to senior Chelsea Lowder from Widefield High School.

Chelsea is a four-year varsity swimmer and has taken first place in all of her individual events this season. She swims in a number of different events but her goal is to qualify for state in the 50 freestyle.

Chelsea was thrilled when News First 5's Jordan Mason told her she won the award. "It makes me feel like I'm a great athlete because it takes something special to get nominated for this," said Chelsea. "So I'm pretty excited!"
