The Middleton Women's Cross Country team is unstoppable! They ran away with the state title for the second consecutive cross country season! Lauren Pansegrau led the way to an individual title both years. The team has the fastest combined times in Wisconsin History! The ladies raced at Nike Cross Country Regionals earlier in the week, placing second overall, a first in Middleton history! Typically their performances would have qualified them for the Nike National meet; however, this year, it was canceled due to Covid. The team was also recognized on Monday night at the Board of Education Meeting! Congratulations women's cross country team, for all of your accomplishments! We appreciate your hard work and dedication to your team and your school!
