Campus’ Nathan Mortensen – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Shelter Insurance, Rachel Janes

By Blake Chadwick 

Nathan Mortensen is a senior cross country runner for the Campus and despite only running for three years, he is already listed as one of the best runners in Campus history. 

“He is arguably the best runner I’ve ever coached based on his times, but his work ethic, humble nature, and exceptional leadership make him one of the best “people” I’ve ever coached,” head coach Cooper Clark said.

The senior has plans on placing at state and running a mid-15 minute 5k but knows he has some senior duties first. 

“I am an upperclassman, so I have the responsibility to help my team behave and get warmed up properly so that we all can perform to the best of our abilities,” Mortensen said. 

Mortensen has an uncanny ability to show up and always give 100 percent. In doing so, the rest of the team models after him.

“Nathan is a fantastic teammate, and he is the epitome of someone who leads by example,” Clark said. “Every runner, regardless of skill level, can look to Nathan if they ever need help or need someone to take charge.” 

Mortensen has placed at every meet this season and currently has a PR of 16:15. 

“As a runner, Nathan is one of the hardest workers I’ve had the privilege to work with,” Clark said. “He is 100% bought in and is an exceptional competitor. He just does more. He practices more positive habits in his everyday life than your average high school runner and works to make his teammates better every day.”
