Location/Affiliation: University of Colorado
- NCAA National Champion in the Mile
- Academic All-American
Micaela is a perfect example of persistence and never giving up. After graduating from Michigan, she came to CU Boulder to get a Master’s degree and continue her track and field career. After overcoming a nasty bout with COVID in January of 2022, she came back to the track and reached the pinnacle of her career.
Micaela won the NCAA Indoor Mile National Championship. And she came so close to being a dual national champion, finishing second in the 1500. She also was named an Academic All-American as well. And she has continued her success off the track, getting her Master’s degree and settling down in Boulder as a software engineer. Micaela is our 2022 honoree in college track and field!
