Meet your editors: Luke Zahlmann, sports director

Editor’s note: As part of a media transparency initiative, on Aug. 20, 2018, The Collegian spent the first day of publishing of the year telling our readers about us. You can read more about the people behind our publication in the Editor’s Blog.

Luke Zahlmann is the sports director of The Collegian for the 2018-2019 school year.


Zahlmann has been working for The Collegian since his freshman year and moved up to director for the upcoming year after a one-year stint as assistant sports editor during the 2017-2018 school year. Since Zahlmann was little, he has leaned on his dad for sports and gained a love for them through him.

Zahlmann grew up in Larkspur and Colorado Springs and graduated from Coronado High School. Zahlmann played baseball throughout high school and played football and basketball before high school.

A finalist for the Pinnacle Sports Columnist of the Year award, Zahlmann has written a weekly column on Thursdays since last year. He is most proud of a feature he wrote on Marybeth Sant in which he dove into her life was able to talk to her high school coach and parents in Florida, developing a deep understanding of the road that led Sant to become a Rams’ track and field runner.

Now as the leader of the sports desk, Zahlmann will lead the charge for the section that has grown exponentially in the past couple of years under former directors Colin Barnard and Justin Michael.
