The Iowa Lakes Community College head cross country coach Molly Struve is proud to announce the signing of Martin Christensen. He will be joining the Laker cross country program this fall.
Christensen was a four-time letter winner in both track and cross country for the Midgets. He was awarded Academic All-Conference Honorable Mention last season as a junior.
"Martin will make a great addition to our men's team this fall. His ability is right up there with two of our returners, so it will be nice to have some inner-team competition between them," said coach Struve. "With Martin's four years of cross country and track experience, the jump from a 5K to a 8K race shouldn't be too difficult for him. That is a two-mile increase from his high school races, but I am confident he will adjust well. He will help out our team scoring and will allow our men's team to compete with the other NJCAA schools in Iowa."
Martin is a currently a high school senior at Estherville Lincoln Central and will be pursing an Associate in Arts Degree at Iowa Lakes beginning this fall.
