LDS Track Star Back From Mission
Philadelphia PA Inquirer 11Apr00 S2
By Chris Morkides: Inquirer Suburban Staff

Although a very promising athlete during his freshman year, Haglund always kept his religion foremost in his planning, and knew he would serve a mission, as did his father and older brother. The article describes the preparations young Haglund had to undergo before reaching his final destination in Korea, as well as some of his routines while there.

Haglund talks about the changes that a mission brought about in him as well as his goals for the future which include trying to qualify for the Division III outdoor national championships in the steeplechase. Head coach Tom Donnelly says of the young athlete, "His potential? He could be a national champion in the steeplechase."
