Bowling, aquatics and athletics are Laura Machuca's specialities, but the Laredo area athlete has earned many medals in an array of sporting events. Machuca joined SOTX in 1998 and credits the organization with bringing out the best in her physically and socially.  When she's not competing, she volunteers at the public library and enjoys listening to music.
