A: “El Pedron” by Nicky Jam and Enrique Iglesias
From the Sideline
“Alaina was named athlete of the meet at the Liberty Invite March 30. She finished first in the long jump, 100 hurdles and the lead leg of the 4×100 m relay. Alaina has put in countless hours of work on the track and in the weight room preparing for this season. She is a great example of how hard work pays off. She is also an amazing student in the class room with a 4.0 GPA.”
