Molly Hanson: that was the goal this entire year it's
what I wanted to do last year
THE DODGEVILLE NATIVE WAS A STAND OUT ON THE TRACK
AND CROSS COUNTRY TEAM IN HIGH SCHOOL.
SHE WENT TO MARQUETTE LAST YEAR BUT TRANSFER TO UW
AND ITS TURING OUT TO A REALLY GOOD DECISION
I am so greateful I chose to come here its been everything
I wanted and more from colelge
HANSON'S DAD WAS HER COACH IN HIGH SCHOOL AND HER
MOM ALSO RAN AT UW IN COLLEGE, SO RUNNING CERTIANLY
IS RUNS IN THE FAMILY.
so whenver we had thanksgiving or christmas it was
always like a coaching clinic all they talk about
is running but it was nice growing up with someone
who knew about running
AS FOR HER ACTUAL COACH AT WISCONSIN.
