Thomsen Signs With Doane

By Leesa K. Bartu
Exeter Correspondent

Wednesday, February 25, was another big day for several Exeter-Milligan athletes. Maitlyn Thomsen signed a Letter of Intent to participate in track at Doane College in Crete.
“I wanted to go to a smaller school and still be able to compete in track,” Thomsen said. “I will do long jump and sprints. Coach Fye has talked to me about heptathlon.”
Thomsen has been a three-sport athlete at Exeter-Milligan, shining on the softball field (with Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan), the basketball court and especially on the track. The Timberwolf senior has gone to the NSAA State Track & Field  Meet every year so far and brought home a medal every year.
“The Exeter-Milligan community has given me so much support along with my coaches to be able to get me a long way,” she said.
Her track coach at Exeter-Milligan, Jackson Krejci, has great hopes for Thomsen at Doane. “I think she will fit in really well at Doane,” Krejci said. “Throughout her career, she has had the ability to fit in slot wherever she was needed and she is an all-around athlete. She has had a great career at Exeter-Milligan.”
Coach Fye sees that as well. “Maitlyn is a great athlete,” Fye said. “I really hope to see her complete as a heptathlete. She is a great leader and comes from a great program. We hope to give her the same kind of success she had in high school.”
Right now, Thomsen says her major is undecided but “It may be something in the health field.”
