Lauren Barber is all smiles after a recent aquatics competition. 
She received medals for the 50m backstroke, 25m breastroke, 50m freestyle and 4x25m freestyle relay.

Fourteen year old Lauren Barber competes in athletics (track and field), softball, soccer, aquatics, tennis and volleyball in the Heart of Texas area.  The Priority Charter School freshman with the wide grin became involved with SOTX this year, but is already a multi-gold medal winner.  Since joining the organization, Barber has become more confident in herself and improved her overall physical health.  Her competitive and winning spirit seems to be hereditary.  Barber's big sister, Julie, is also a SOTX competitor and participates in many of the same sports.

When she's not racking up medals and ribbons, Barber plays Wii video games and swims in her spare time.
