CLEVELAND - At practices, Lincoln West High School senior Abigail Velez keeps in shape for cross country, basketball and track.
Velez is a three-sport athlete and dancer, being involved with the Latin Dance Club. She's also captain of Junior ROTC, a leader in and out of the classroom.
"Abigail is a great kid. I had her in class last year. She comes in and works she cares about her education," said head cross country coach Tim Casselberry. "She's polite, she helps her friends and pushes them along too. She's a leader."
As a good leader, Velez is always reaching for higher goals.
"I work hard and I push myself to do better than I already do. To me, there is no limit of going higher. To me, I can reach higher than I am now," said Velez.
Reaching her goals and being a leader is what makes Abigail Velez our McDonald's Student Athlete of the Week.
