Dickinson High senior Lexi Jordheim has been a talented track and field athlete at Dickinson High for years. She was pulled up to compete at the high school level in seventh and eighth grade and now, ahead of her senior season, she has committed to North Dakota State University to compete at the collegiate level.
“I wanted to play volleyball until (the 2016) state track meet,” Jordheim said. “I ended up doing really well and love the season and love the environment of all the different athletes. There’s so many different people at meets. It’s awesome. So I always knew I wanted to do a college sport. I didn’t know if it was volleyball or track. (That) year, stepping off the podium, I knew that’s what I wanted to do.”
