The Raleigh Sports Club honored Alex Payne '15 as its Student Athlete of the Week on Wednesday, Oct. 1. The award recognizes local high school student athletes for their achievements on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

Payne is a member of the cross country, wrestling and lacrosse teams. He has served as a two-year captain for cross country and wrestling and participates in Ravenscroft's Student-Athlete Leadership Program. He is also a member of the Pep Band, Jazz Band, and Concert Band. He is a National Merit Semifinalist and will be completing the requirements for Finalist in the coming month.

Payne organized the "Race to End Hunger" campaign at the Adidas XC challenge on Sept. 20. Participating schools were asked to bring canned goods for the Interfaith Food Shuttle, a project that evolved from a leadership project in his advisory.
