Cross country: Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau’s Dana Feyen commits to Iowa State
GALESVILLE — Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau senior cross country and track and field star has made her decision.
The two-time state cross country champion and three-time track and field champion announced that she will continue her academic and running careers at Division I Iowa State University.
Feyen also took official visits and discussed scholarship offers with Minnesota, Wisconsin, Toledo and Boise State before choosing the Cyclones as the best fit.
Iowa State won the Big 12 Conference championship and followed that up with a regional title to qualify for the Division I national meet Saturday in Madison. The Cyclones have won the Big 12 seven of the last eight years in cross country.
Feyen will have spots on both the cross country and track and field teams after accepting a scholarship for both academics and athletics.
In addition to contending for four state titles in cross country, Feyen has qualified to run the 1,600 and 3,200 meters as a freshman, sophomore and junior at the state track and field meet in La Crosse.
Feyen has won the 3,200 twice and the 1,600 once after sweeping the titles as a junior. She also placed second in the 1,600 as a sophomore, the 3,200 and a freshman and third in the 1,600 as a freshman.
