Twelve year old Alyssa McConnell is an athlete from the Olney school district delegation.  The North Texas area athlete participates in bowling, basketball and athletics and loves to compete in front of her family. The Olney Junior High seventh-grader joined SOTX in 2010 and is a member of the school's pep squad.  When McConnell isn't racking up medals, she's either watching WWE women's wrestling on TV or enjoying a good scare from a horror movie.
