Fighting Bee: Megan Jansett

The Fighting Bee Track and Field team is surrounded by supportive athletes who push each other to their greatest potential. They can always count on their teammates to bring energy to their day, even after 8 hours of physical therapy school! 

SAU Bee Megan Jansett is from Colgate, Wisconsin and attended Sussex Hamilton High School. Here at Ambrose, she participates in track and field and cross country. Jansett will receive her undergraduate degree at Saint Ambrose in Exercise Science this May and is currently in her first year of the Physical Therapy Doctoral program. She decided to come to SAU because of their reputable physical therapy program and wanted to continue to run track. Jansett runs the 400, 200 and 4×400 with her favorite event being the 400. 

What is your favorite memory on the team?

 “I would say my favorite memory was the indoor conference this year. The morale of our team was the highest I’ve ever seen it and the positive energy showed in individual performances. I saw so many of my teammates run PR’s and it’s a good feeling knowing that all of the hours spent on the track were worth it!”

What is something you are going to miss?

“100% my teammates. It’s crazy to think about how much time we all spend together! Two hours every day plus weekends during the season…we are a big family and it is going to be tough to not have that in my life.”

What is one piece of advice you could give to student athletes at SAU?

“My coach always tells us to control the controllable. It seems like a simple concept, but lots of people struggle with it-especially college students. Control your attitude and your effort and everything will fall into place how it’s meant to.”
