COLUMBUS – Makenna Loften is heading to South-Central Nebraska to continue her athletic career at Hastings College.
Loften, a Columbus High Senior, signer her letter of intent on Thursday morning to run cross country as well as track and field for Hastings College. While Loften will be running long distance on the cross country team, she will be running sprints for the track team.
Loften says, “I’m excited to run in college, and it drew me to go there, because my sister went there so it was kind of familiar and it’s closer to family.”
Loften has lettered several years in cross country and track at CHS and says she plans to study accounting in college.
Loften joins Columbus High Alum Emily Grant who is finishing her Sophomore season for the Broncos.
