OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Lademi Davies won four individual state championships and is believed to be the only girl to do it in Nebraska high school history in one state meet.

Her athletic success is only part of her story, she’s the best student in her class at Westside, she has a perfect ACT score, she will go to Texas on a musical scholarship, she speaks multiple languages and has dual citizenship in multiple countries. Lademi will join the track team as a walk-on when she starts college in Austin, Texas.
