My name is Katie Gerber and I am your new sports writer at The Sun. I am from Eau Claire, Wis. and before you ask, yes I am a cheesehead through and through. I played soccer, volleyball and ran track in high school and still enjoy running, biking and playing pick-up volleyball. I enjoy watching and playing a variety of sports so if you are looking for an extra player, I would be more than happy to help you out!
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this past May with a bachelor's degree in journalism and interned as a sports reporter at the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. I covered a lot of athletes and sports during my time in Eau Claire but I am ready to start highlighting what your athletes and programs are doing to better athletics.
I am excited to start forming connections with coaches, athletes and members of your community in order to bring the stories that matter to you to life.
While thrilled to be here, I am new to your sports scene so I need story ideas! If any ideas come to mind, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 701-952-8460. I can also be found on Twitter by following @GerberKaitlyn.
Please do not hesitate to say hello and introduce yourself if you see me out and about!
