Palmer Ridge soccer player is Athlete of the Week

Holly Weyand of the Palmer Ridge High School soccer team is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.

Sports might actually be the least impressive thing she does.

Holly is a four year starter as a outside defender. She also carries a 4.0 GPA, volunteers with Special Olympics, and is a member of the National Honor Society.

But soccer is her true love.

"Soccer is something I've been doing for a long time," said Holly. "It just kind of turned into a passion, and also it helps me kind of get away from the stress of school. You have to be focused. You have to have a certain mindset. It's a stress reliever, and it's something I really enjoy.

Holly will play soccer for Colorado School of Mines next year.

She plans to major in biochemical engineering before going to medical school.
