Nodak's Finest

Just wondering if anyone can name some of the fine track and field athletes that have gone on to compete in college? It'd be nice to see who have dedicated themselves to running in circles or throwing heavy objects.

Two websites I would check out:

ndrunner.tripod.com (LOTS of good stuff there)
northdakotarunner.blogspot.com (pretty biased self-promotion, but there's research there)

These are more distance-runner heavy, and I don't know if anybody keeps track of post-collegiate athletes in sprints or field events.

Some of the most successful runners post-collegiately that I can think of off the top of my head that would be great places to begin looking:

Laura Roesler
Andrew Carlson
Corey Ihmels

Riley Dolezal (Stanley) threw the Javelin at NDSU...now throws the Jav professionally.

Thought I'd add to this thread,

Yesterday (6/7/18), Alyssa Olin (Mott) placed 5th in the Women's Javelin Final at the NCAA Division 1 Track and Field Championships, scoring points for NDSU as a senior. Her best throw was 55.02m, or 180 ft, 6in.
