Class of 2015
BHS Class of 2015 graduate, Alexis Downie played soccer and ran track at BHS, and she was the PA announcer for the Spartan Boys Baseball Team.

"My career as a sports broadcaster is something that I aspired to achieve from a very young age. I love the passion in sports, the family they create, and the opportunity they provide to share the stories of athletes at all levels. Working in the NHL is a dream come true and brings new challenges every day.
The broadcast journalism class that I took while at BHS gave me my first taste of the television industry. I learned how to edit, host shows and the basics of what goes on behind-the-scenes. Those skills helped kickstart my career in a way that had me ahead of the curve from the beginning. In addition to that, being a part of the athletic community at BHS provided an understanding of a variety of sports to make me versatile in my career."
