Article: Sports editor brings love of photojournalism to the Optic

From the Las Vegas Optic

Caitie Ihrig developed a love of sports photography while growing up in Rochester, N.Y.

It’s a skill she will be able to use daily in her new role as the Optic’s sports editor.

For Ihrig, photography is much more than an interest or fleeting hobby. She was born cross-eyed, a condition that causes her eyes to turn toward each other, something that could deter many from ever picking up a camera.
