WALB STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK (3/6/13): DWS' Anna Cowart

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

This week's Colony Bank Student-Athlete of the Week has plenty on her plate without school.

But she's managing all of it with flying colors.

Deerfield-Windsor senior Anna Cowart likes to keep her planner filled.

Not only is she a member of the Lady Knights basketball team, she is also a champion barrel racer.

But the classroom may be where Cowart shines most.

According to girls head basketball coach Jeff Eubanks, Cowart has a good shot at being the class valedictorian.

She says it keeps her busy, but she enjoys every minute.

"It definitely keeps me busy," she laughs. "I take a hard load of classes at school, so to balance between homework at night and basketball practice and horse shows, it takes a toll. But it's worth it to get to experience everything."

Cowart will attend the University of Georgia where she plans to study animal science in hopes of becoming a veterinarian.
