Allie Smith, Sports Editor

My name is Allie Smith and I am a last-semester senior broadcast journalism major here at WT (woot-woot!). This is my fourth semester with the Prairie, including my three semesters as the Sports Editor. If you happen to know me outside of the FAC, it’s probably because you’ve been to a Lady Buff softball game and noticed that I am also the designated player (#18). As my undergraduate career winds down, I am looking to crank up the heat a bit by going to law school. Outside of my work with the Prairie, Rogers LEAD WT, WT Softball and school, I spend as much time as possible with my perfect, sweet little dog, Sadie.
