Adele Sands, Writer, Editor

Adele is a second-year staff writer of The Patriot Press, and of CDS. She loves taking pictures, especially of live-action sports and landscapes. She spends her limited free time training with some of her first friends on her swim team. She has an extensive obsession with the Tampa Bay Lightning (back to back, baby!), and dreams of swimming D1 in college. Adele ultimately has her sights set on becoming a doctor, or a physical therapist for professional athletes. She is super excited to be part of this amazing team of talented writers. Go Patriots!
