MVP ACCOMPLISHMENTS: UC-bound senior has been a golfing star since the 8th grade, when at age 14, she won the NKY Jr. Amateur Championship. The next year, she won the Greater Cincinnati Golf Association Junior Metropolitan Championship, and following her sophomore year shot a women’s course-record 66 to win the Lady Elks Invitational at Yankee Trace in Centerville, Ohio, marking the 2nd straight year she had won the invitational. Last season in her varsity play, she was regional champ and 5th at state. She was named NKY Golfer of the Year for the 2nd time and 1st team all-state. Alex was NKAC and regional medalist again this season, and finished 10th (tie) at state. In the NKAC championships, she bagged a hole-in-one on the 268-yard, par 4 hole at the Kenton County Pioneer golf course— a feat considered to be a million-to-one shot for an amateur. Also an academic all-state performer, her favorite athlete is Peyton Manning, and most-like-to-meet is Mother Teresa.
COACH'S QUOTE -- "Alex exemplifies all the traits it takes on and off the golf course to be a great leader: focus, determination, preparation and commitment." – Kelsey Krahe, Golf Coach
