Alex Ketcham, Sports Editor

As a senior, this is Alex's third year on staff and fourth year in the journalism program. He is very excited to work as the Sports Editor again. When not pursuing his love of writing and media, Alex will probably be seen in the theatre, as he is serving as the Drama Club President this year. If he is not there, then he will probably be singing or watching sports. If not there, he will probably be catching up on his messed-up sleep schedule.
