Remembering Alex Loos
Five years ago today, Alexzandra Loos was killed when she was struck by a car while walking home from soccer practice. Her impact at Bentworth High School and beyond is felt to this day.
As a freshman, Loos was one of the WPIAL's premier distance runners, winning the Class AA 1,600 run and placing second in the 800. At states, she placed third and sixth in those respective events and became the first Bentworth athlete to medal at the PIAA Track and Field Championships.
Loos never made it to her sophomore year. The 15-year-old died near Bentworth High School.
An ace student, Loos played on the boys soccer team at Bentworth and was involved with a long list of extracirricular activities. On top of that, she was a humble, polite person.
Loos' legacy lives on with the From Alex With Love Foundation.
