March 5, 2013
MEMPHIS, Tenn.- Runner Meghan Christensen out of Austin, Texas has signed her National Letter of Intent to join the University of Memphis women's track and field team, head coach Kevin Robinson announced on Tuesday.
"I expect Meghan to make an immediate impact on the team," Robinson said. "Meghan is a very gifted overall athlete. She has competed at a high level in the 400 hurdles, although her school and state do not sponsor the event. I am confident that she will improve rapidly when she gets more training and competitive exposure in the long hurdles."
Christensen was a four-year letterwinner in track and a two-year letterwinner in cross country for James Bowie High School under coach Rita Gonzales. Along with her work on the track, Christensen has been honored for her work in the classroom being named to the National Honors Society and tabbed Academic All-District.
Christensen is also very active in her school participating in Peer Assistance Leadership, Class Officers, serving as NHS President and serving as a Saving Sophie Officer. She is the daughter of Phil and Cynthia Christensen.
