Jansen signs letter of intent to compete at Northwestern

Julie Jansen, a 2017 graduate of Oak Harbor High School, recently signed a letter of intent to compete in track and field at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, this fall.

Jansen, who received 11 varsity letters while participating in three sports at OHHS, was the Western Conference 3A North Divisional champion in the discus this spring.

She earned all-conference track and field honors two years and placed in the district championship her sophomore, junior and senior years.

Jansen also started for the Wildcats in volleyball and basketball.

In addition to starring in athletics at OHHS, Jansen was a member of the National Honor Society and received the President’s Education Awards program Outstanding Academic Excellence award. She plans to major in elementary education at Northwestern.

“Julie is a welcome addition to our Northwestern College campus and track and field team,” head track coach Scott Bahrke said. “She is a gifted athlete who possesses an outstanding work ethic and will be a great fit on our team. I am excited to watch Julie compete over the next four years.”

She is the daughter of Dwayne and Debbie Jansen.
