Dana Feyen


#1

Anyone know what happened to Dana Feyen? She ran 23:40.9 for 27th on Saturday. https://www.athletic.net/result/e2F2ejxi6D4gg/

Looking at the results I would say pacing their #2 runner whom is a freshman that finished with the same time.


#3

Correct. From talking to her coach she’s helping her teammates out with pacing. They finally have a complete girls team and they are excited to show up in the scoring. Dana will race hard in a few weeks.


#4

Is this not what practice is for? This whole pacing a teammate thing always sounds like such a cover up. HOWEVER I can see its practicality if the teammates being paced are somewhat new.


#5

That’s what, maybe the third race in her career that she’s ran with people close to her?


#6

One of the moms from GET who was there said Dana is laying low now because she is focusing on being ready for the races after state.


#7

very ambitious. ive sort of categorized Dana Feyen as Andi Ostenso part ii. What makes them different? I am not positive but i think Ladysmith’s all timer was also all-midwest. I hope Dana has a 1-2-3 easy path to regionals.

I’m sure that her coaches make decisions that are thought out with her best interest. We coaches have a strong opinion on what is right or wrong to do with our athletes, we should not pass judgment on how other coaches coach theirs. I think we’ll see some good things soon from Dana.
