Melrose Mindoro has its 1-st division one athlete
in at least 30 years.
Alex Hatlevig signs a letter of intent to compete
in track and field at U-W Milwaukee.
Hatlevig was a big part of the Mustang's 2-nd place
finish at last year's State Track and Field Meet.
He won the 100 and 200 dash.
He's headed to a program that's won a combined 18
straight indoor and outdoor league titles.
But as much as this means to him .
that's nothing to what it means to Melrose-Mindoro.
When I first heard the news I was going to get a national
letter of intent, that I was going to sign here, I
didn't know that it was going to be this big.
I thought I was going to sign the paper and send it
in the mail.
But I feel pretty proud to be the first D-I athlete
It kinda shows that I'm from a small school going
to a big city, one of those, little schools can do
