Leading the way at the Lions den of Orange High School as the Lady Lions host Wickliffe High for a shootout is junior Alexia Wells. Alexia leads by example. She works hard when it's time to play and the coaches are impressed with her work.

"She wants to work. She wants to learn what she needs to do and she fights to get it done and she will give you everything she has," said head girls basketball coach Ship Collins.

Basketball is just one of the things she's good at. She is also on the track team and a football cheerleader. With her busy schedule she is also taking honor classes. Alexia is doing well with her academics, and she believe that will help her reach her goals in life.

"It's like you have the key to everything you just know certain things and it's very very very important to me," said Alexia.
