She led Montana State to a third place finish in the Nordic competition at the 2010 NCAA Skiing Championships, and Grethe Hagensen has been rewarded.  Today, the Norwegian native was named the United States Collegiate Ski Coaches Association Coach of the Year, as her peers voted her number one in the country.  Hagensen’s squad also had six All-American honors, and by placing eighth overall at the NCAA Championships, the team had its highest finish since 1983.  Hagensen was a member of the Norwegian National Team before she attended the University of Wyoming, where she was an All-American for all four years of her college career.
