Posted 6:17 PM 5/1/2012 : Mitchell speedster is Athlete of the Week
Amanda Stoudt of Mitchell High School is this week's Loaf ‘N Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.
Amanda is the senior captain for the Mitchell track team. She ran at the state meet last year and hopes to return this year.
She's also on the Marauders cross country team and hopes to run at Utah State University, where she has a full academic scholarship for next year. Amanda says she just loves this whole running thing.
"It's an emotional release and it's just fun," said Amanda. "You go out and see a bunch of places, you meet a bunch of different people, and it feels good on the inside just to be able to run."
Amanda is a straight-A student with AP and Honors classes. She has never gotten one B, which means her GPA is something like four-million-billion, point whatever.
Her career goal is to go into sports medicine.
