DEFOREST — Middleton senior Lauren Pansegrau said Saturday she is verbally committed to the University of Michigan and plans to compete in women’s cross country and track and field.

Pansegra won the girls’ race in 17 minutes, 24.29 seconds at the WIAA Division 1 DeForest Sectional Cross Country Meet on Saturday at Windsor Sports Commons’ Linde Fields.

Middleton was the girls’ team champion and advanced to the WIAA State Cross Country Meet in Wisconsin Rapids the following Saturday.

When asked after the girls’ race if she had decided on college, she said she chose Michigan last week.

“It’s a really good school,” she said. “It looks like you have a really good balance with school and athletics.”

Middleton Girls cross country coach Alexa Richardson said Pansegrau had texted her recently and said she was surprised to tell her during practice.

“I was so excited,” Richardson said. “She was going back and forth like 10 schools. He didn’t reduce it. … I was hoping it was Michigan. I think she fits in there really well. She likes the atmosphere, the coach and the teammates. I think it would be really cool for him to move fast and continue to be successful. “

Richardson said Pansegra is an excellent student.
