The pueblo east high school softball team is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.
On Saturday, the Eagles won the 4A state championship game for their first softball state title and only their second overall team championship in school history. East has 13 second-place sports finishes. The Eagles finished with a record of 24-0-1 and extremely excited when we caught up with them in front of their high school this week.
"One goal, one mission, one game at a time," said the Eagles team. "State champs, 2012!"
Ben Garcia has been Pueblo East head coach since 1992 and had four second place finishes until this season.
