Lizzy Sorensen, News & Sports Editor
Hi! I’m Lizzy Sorensen, and I am the News Editor for 42Fifty. I am a sophomore at OHS, and this is my first year in the journalism program. Some of my favorite things are Chick-Fil-A, traveling, Reese’s, playing guitar, the Chicago Cubs, barbecue chicken pizza, fuzzy socks, football Sundays, iced coffee, Grey’s Anatomy and dogs. If you ever need to reach me, chances are I’m at dance. I have been dancing since I was 4 and am on the halftime and competitive dance teams here at OHS, as well as a studio outside of school. I am also involved with some clubs: athletic leadership council and orchesis. I’m so excited to see what this year brings for 42Fifty!
