The Master’s College women’s cross country and track coach Zach Schroder announces the signing of Hollie Larsen from Saugus High School. Larsen will complete her senior year of high school in the summer of 2013 and will compete for the Mustangs in the fall.

Larsen currently trains for the Centurions’ varsity program, but competes on the junior varsity level for strategic purposes and coaching preferences.

“I don’t mind, I’m proud to be a JV runner,” Larsen said with a smile.

The newest Lady Mustang harrier possesses an impressive background in distance running, as she has been training since the 8th grade. Three of the most recent years have been spent training on the varsity level.

When not running, Larsen has a proven track record of excellence in the classroom, as the future Lady Mustang has been an honors student for her entire high school career.

“From the start, I’ve only been looking at The Master’s College,” comments Larsen after signing her letter of intent. “It’s a fantastic environment and in all the classes I know the professors will take you back to the Scriptures.”

The new recruit’s collegiate goals are to run a mile in less than 5 minutes and 20 seconds and to be the best encouragement for her teammates as she possibly can be.

Cross country coach Zach Schroeder couldn’t be more pleased on Larsen’s commitment to the Lady Mustangs.

“When Hollie was here looking at the college, she made a huge impact on the team,” assessed Schroeder. “When she left, all the girls were saying, “We want Hollie!”

Schroeder further commented on the Lady Mustangs’ newest runner by saying, “We’re very excited about building a special team and Hollie has the potential to be an essential member of our squad. I’m confident that she’ll grow spiritually, socially, and physically during her time at The Master’s College.”

Assistant coach Amie Schroeder also commented on Larsen by saying “Hollie’s heart stood out to me when I was talking to her. She evidently loves Jesus and I know that she’s going to contribute both physically and spiritually to the team while she’s at TMC.”

And while Larsen will enter as a freshman in the fall of 2013, she’s already well acquainted with TMC as her father Dave Larsen has served as an athletic trainer for the Mustangs over the past 14 years.

“Hollie has been in the public school system her entire life, and I’m excited that she’ll have the opportunity to learn with a Christian world view,” commented Dave on his daughter’s upcoming time as a Mustang. “The athletics department at TMC strives to do everything for the Lord’s glory and I’m excited that she’ll be a part of that.”

At the moment, Larsen is currently undecided on her major course of study, but has the passion to pursue a career in either medicine or missions.

The Lady Mustangs’ distance squad is currently gearing up for the track season and is looking to develop their squad with what appears to be their best recruiting class in program history.

With a solid group of performers that have committed to compete for TMC in 2013, Hollie Larson appears to be at the right place, at the right time.

“It’s like a family here,” says Larsen. “I know this is the right place for me.”
