Posted 9:15 PM 3/20/2012 : Athlete of the Week -- Taylor Lozano
It is Tuesday, and that means it's time for our Loaf 'n Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.
Congratulations to Taylor Lozano of Vista Ridge High School.
Taylor is a co-captain of the Wolves Cheerleading team. It's her third year on the squad. The junior says she loves motivating her team and cheering on her school.
The person who nominated her says she is an excellent leader and has some of the most spirit they've ever seen.
Taylor is quite the spokeswoman for her sport, she says
, "It's not easy pushing girls up for two minutes and thirty seconds. You have to have an amazing stamina and your cardio has to be up. Tumbling is not easy. Most cheerleaders are really gymnasts who kind of didn't want to do gymnastics anymore, wanted to mix things up, then became cheerleaders."
She says she's a student athlete. Her student comes first, her athlete is the second part.
She's an A and B student in AP and honors classes.
Don't forget to nominate your favorite athlete!
