Luke Olson, a recent graduate from the Journalism program at Pacific University (Forest Grove, OR), has stepped in as the new Sports Editor – our first ever – for South King Media

Growing up in Normandy Park, WA, Olson attended John F. Kennedy High School. A three-year letterman for the golf team that included an ‘Athlete of the Year’ honor in 2013, he transferred to Green River Community College to continue his passion of competitive golf. After receiving his AA, he decided to transfer to a university in which he could pursue his goals of sports journalism and resume playing collegiate golf.

Olson served as the Sports Editor for the university’s school newspaper, The Pacific Index, his senior year. He is eager to gain experience in the field and since starting with the blog, has covered the semi-professional team, the Highline Bears, and has also reported on a Seahawks mini-camp practice in June.

Luke will report on Sports for Burien, Des Moines, SeaTac, Normandy Park, Tukwila and Kent.

If you have a story idea for him, please email [email protected].
