Grace Min, Sports Editor

After her first year on The Accolade, senior Grace Min serves as the co-sports editor for the 2022-2023 school year. She discovered her skill and passion for sports writing while covering multiple games during the winter and spring seasons as a staff reporter.

When she isn’t recapping the Lancers’ latest victories, Min also achieves them by playing on the girls varsity volleyball team. Aside from sports, she enjoys watching movies and hanging out with her friends.
