She joined her mentor, Kendra Tilley (Anna ISD Teacher and Coach) and other winners this summer at the Battles Won Academy, in Washington D.C. July 13 - 17, 2017.

Presented by the United States Marine Corps, the Semper Fidelis All-American Program recognizes high school students who face life’s battles with the conviction and determination to succeed. These students embody the same fighting spirit that Marines stand for by taking on the challenges of succeeding academically while bettering their communities and excelling in athletics and extracurricular activities. The Semper Fidelis All-American Program writes, "Alexandra demonstrates the attitude of an All-American by being active in her community and pushing herself to become an all-state soccer player." 

Forty-eight boys and forty-eight girls were chosen nation-wide to participate at the Battles Won Academy. Of this elite group, six boys and six girls were chosen to be featured in their own video, produced by Intersport. Schofield was chosen as one of the deserving featured students and you can watch it here.

If that wasn't enough honor and recognition, Schofield was coined by a four-star general, an honor that very few people ever receive. She was named Intersport's Female All-American of the Year. and was granted their first-ever scholarship to the tune of $5,000 during the closing award banquet. Mrs. Tilley states, "I cannot express how proud I am of Alexy. I cried and cheered like a proud "momma-cheer coach!"

"Battles Won Academy has changed my life," states Schofield, "I am so thankful for this amazing opportunity and blessed to have met as many amazing people as I did this weekend!  And to top it all off, thank you Intersport for believing in me enough to award me with a $5000 scholarship!"
