Posted 6:37 PM 5/29/2012 : Air Academy lacrosse player is Athlete of the Week
Air Academy High School senior lacrosse player Miranda Beal is our Loaf n Jug Aquafina Athlete of the Week.
The Kadets defender helped lead her team to an upset win in the state championship last week over Cherry Creek.
Beal actually graduated about a week before the rain soaked game and she told us then that the accomplishment of her team was just awesome.
"We came in as the underdogs and left as the champions," Beal said. "It's just awesome to come from the Springs and people know that we're maybe not a contender and we've just come and upset the, one of the best teams in lacrosse in Colorado."
Beal has actually accepted an appointment to the US Naval Academy to play lacrosse. She leaves for Annapolis, next month.
