Alex is headed to Stanford University

At Sage Hill, he served as a Student Ambassador, Peer Counselor and Captain of Varsity Golf. He was a freshman starter for Varsity Golf and won the Coach’s Award that year. Sage Hill had been league champions for the past three years. The team hoped to capture the league title again this year, but the season was sadly cut short.
