THE NDSU TRACK & FIELD LEGACY

Bison Illustrated March Issue

Bison Illustrated’s editor, Joe Kerlin dives into interviews with some of NDSU’s legacy track and field athletes about their journeys to the top in the magazine’s March issue. We selected just four of many remarkable quotes from record-breaking Bison athletes. Read Bison Illustrated’s latest issue and more at spotlightmediafargo.com/bison-illustrated.

Landon Jochim sprinter NDSU

“I wanted to be one of the best to ever run here. I think this year, so far, it’s been going in the right direction. But I don’t think it will be satisfying until I make it to at least the West Preliminaries and the ultimate goal is to make it to Nationals.”

– Landon Jochim, junior sprinter for NDSU’s track and field team

Alex Renner and Katelyn Weimerskirch
Alex Renner and Katelyn Weimerskirch, Bison throwers 

“There are so many things that I’ve learned that I will use forever. Things like discipline, being able to work hard and never giving up. You really develop that more in college and throughout your five years. I couldn’t imagine just being here four. I’ve had all these experiences in five years. They’re things I’ll cherish forever and will bring me through the rest of my life.”

– Katelyn Weimerskirch, senior thrower for NDSU’s track and field team

“I look at (rankings) a little bit. More than anything, it’s to see where you’re at, but it’s not like you dwell on it. I try not to throw a certain mark because then you start pressing and you should just go out and throw. There’s a point where you look at them too much and you obsess with them and you can’t focus on what you’re supposed to do. You have to focus on the little things and do the little things right.”

– Alex Renner, senior thrower for NDSU’s track and field team

Morgan Milbrath NDSU sprinter

“It’s a lot of juggling, but they are things I’m very passionate about. All the organizations I’m in, they’re great. It’s very collaborative work. I try to focus on school first. Athletics does take priority over my clubs, but my clubs are right up there because they are something I’m so passionate about. There’s a lot less of a social aspect going on in my life, but I get it in my clubs so I don’t really need it in other areas.”

– Morgan Milbrath, senior sprinter for NDSU’s track and field team
