Alex may be one of the few sports writers who doesn’t have a favorite team. Or a favorite sport. But she does have favorite stories. Buying into the words “it’s not the score that matters, it’s the athlete,” Alex has for the past six years covered personal sports stories that range from inspiring to fascinating to down right weird.
Alex is a former Division I athlete and sports editor at Harvard University. After interning with The Washington Times sports department in 2009, she now contributes regularly to the Washington Times Metro, Sports, and Communities sections.
