If you are not familiar with Alex Loos, please know that she was an accomplished athlete and student as well as a genuinely kind and giving person. Sadly Alex was struck and killed by a speeding car in August of 2004 as she and a friend were walking home from Bentworth High School following a session of soccer conditioning. She was 15.
Not only was Alex 1 of 2 girls on a high school boys soccer team (Bentworth did not have a girls soccer team), she was a starter and letterman as a freshman. To see this determined 5’2″ blonde girl hold her own on a soccer field with young men substantially larger was nothing less than remarkable. Also, the first year Alex ever ran track she set a WPIAL record in the 1600m and placed third in this event at the Pennsylvania Track and Field Championship.

This is an ongoing story of Alex feel free to add comments or memories you would about Alex.
Alex was born Sept 2, 1988 to James & Cathy Loos. At the time she had one big sister Jaminique. Naturally she was beautiful with strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. One of the first things I remembered was when she opened her mouth and stuck her tongue it was so long it touched her chin. After having Jaminique we were expecting the same with Alex, but instead of never wanting to sleep like Jaminique she was very easy.
