After being part of a national championship team, Maddy Jourgensen had already enjoyed a great deal of success for a college freshman. She didn’t let that go to her head, however, as Jourgensen still had two seasons of athletics competition ahead of her. The 2011 Moffat County High School graduate is between her freshman and sophomore seasons at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D. She runs cross-country and track for the Vikings. During her freshman cross-country season, Jourgensen was good enough to run with the team at the Division II NCAA National Championships, where they won. Afterward, runners got to take a short break before coming back for indoor track.
