Congratulations to Alexandra Buscher for receiving the 2015 Touchdown Scholar-Athlete Award for female swimmers. 

The Touchdown Club of Houston runs programs designed to use the power of amateur sports in developing scholarship, citizenship, and athletic achievement in young people. 

This year, the club received over 300 nominations from public and private high schools in the Greater Houston Area. Four finalist student-athletes were selected for a number of sports: softball, baseball, basketball, cheerleading, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, track & field, volleyball, and wrestling. The 69 finalists were honored during a dinner on May 27, where the winners were announced for each sport.

Alexandra is following in the fin steps of Dad's Club swimmers Briana Burns and Grant Kirchhofer as 2014 finalists, with Grant winning the award for male swimmers.

Alexandra recently graduated from Memorial High School and will begin her freshman year at Texas A&M this fall.
