Record-setting hurdler is Athlete of the Week

This week's Loaf 'N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week is a record-setting hurdler from The Classical Academy.

Alexa Chacon just set two state records--in the 100 and 300-meter hurdles-at last weekend's state championships. It was her third straight title in the 300 and second straight in the 100. She helped the TCA girls win an amazing seventh team championship in eight years.

"I knew that it wasn't a for sure chance that I was going to get first," said Alexa. "It never is in the 100 hurdle race. It's just one of those races where anything could happen."

Alexa will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy in the fall.
