Head coach Amy Sauser announced today the signing of cross country runner Haden Mikesell (Papillion, Neb. / Papillion LaVista South HS) to a letter of intent to continue her academic and athletic career at College of Saint Mary.
Mikesell has earned varsity letters in three sports in her Papillion La Vista South career.
"I chose CSM because of the close, tight-knit community," said Mikesell. "I fell in love with the personal atmosphere and the opportunities that this college will provide me with. And the cross country team is awesome!"
Last season, Mikesell was named to the Nebraska All-State Academic team and is a two time all-conference runner.
"Haden is an excellent student and cross country runner and will continue her academic studies in pursuit of a Biology degree at CSM," commented Sauser.
Mikesell is the first player to join the Flames' cross country team for the 2012-2013 school year.
College of Saint Mary athletic teams are members of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Midland Collegiate Athletic Conference (MCAC). CSM is a Catholic university dedicated to the education of women in an environment that calls forth potential and fosters leadership.
