Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
Kaylee Herndon, nineteen, is a young and new author who has extensive experience
writing for local publications. She is majoring in sports journalism and pursuing a bachelor’s
degree at Millersville University. She was the head editor of the E-town ExPRESSion, and wrote
for both the Elizabethtown Advocate and The Torch. She was also a blogger on Figment, where
she was a featured author in 2015. She has also been featured in the VOX magazine, a local
publication of Elizabethtown College, and on The Virtual Cavern.
Kaylee writes a variety of poetry, short stories, and flash fiction in addition to her work in
journalism. Her other work can be found on her blog at herndonk.weebly.com. She also is
working towards getting coaching certifications for fencing, a sport that she has participated in
for six years now. In the future, she aims to live in a large east coast city such as Washington
D.C. or New York.
