Jessica Garcia runs cross-country for the Ladybirds at Southern Nash High School and is The Enterprise’s Farris & Thomas Law Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.

Jessica also plays midfield on the Ladybirds soccer team.

A 16-year-old junior, Jessica plans to pursue a nursing career after college.

Jessica was one of five Ladybirds to lead the way for Southern Nash during a Sept. 14 meet at Owen Park in Louisburg. The Ladybirds finished fourth, positioning themselves in the top half of the 2-A/3-A Big East Conference standings.

She also helped lead Southern Nash to a fourth-place team finish during the conference’s first meet of the season Sept. 8 at Rocky Mount High.

On the soccer team, Jessica was one of five Ladybirds to score goals in Southern Nash’s 9-0 rout of host Nash Central on April 26.
