Women's Track Shoes

Women's Track shoes worn by Lauren Stelten (Cologne, Minn.), who won the 2011 NCAA Division II Indoor championship, becoming MSU's third female pole vault national champion. She finished her indoor career as a four-time indoor All-American having earned first (2011), second (2008 and 2010) and sixth (2009) at the national meet. She won the NSIC Indoor Championship in the pole vault in 2011 and 2010 and finished second in 2009.

Stelten had just as much success outdoors as she is a four-time Outdoor All-American in the pole vault, finishing first in 2011, second in 2010, fourth in 2009 and 2008. Stelten won the 2010 and 2011 NSIC Outdoor TF pole vault title after finishing second in 2009.

Lauren was selected as Minnesota State's Senior Female Athlete of the Year for 2010-11.
