Hailey Fine, Assistant Sports Editor

My name is Hailey Fine and I’m a sports editor for The Evanstonian. I’m a senior at Evanston and very much enjoy journalism. I also play lacrosse, babysit, and work as a hostess at a restaurant. I like to hang out with my friends and go to the beach in my free time. If you could describe me in one word, it would definitely be “goofy.”
