Alexandria and her brothers were extremely close growing up. So when they began wrestling in 2014, she says, “I followed closely behind, and the rest is history.” She wrestled her way through high school, becoming the first four-time undefeated Texas State champion, and then joined the Army in 2019. Alexandria not only sets the standard as a Soldier-athlete, but also helps put on camps for young girls’ self-improvement. Throughout her wrestling career – continuing into her current international competitions – she finds motivation in the example of her late older brother. She carries his inspiration with her each time she steps on the mat.
