Megan Winkelmann-Ivusic HOF Induction

(Corning) -- Iowa's first 2.5 mile state champion is now a member of the KMA Sports Hall of Fame.

Nodaway Valley alum Megan Winkelmann-Ivusic was inducted into the KMA Sports Hall of Fame during the Pride of Iowa Conference track meet in Corning Monday evening. 

"It's been amazing, it took 16 years, but I'm glad that I finally got into the hall of fame," Ivusic told KMA Sports.

During her prep career, Ivusic claimed two cross country state championships. Isuvic claimed the Class 1A title in 2002 and followed it up with a Class 2A title in 2003. Ivusic also became the first Iowa runner to claim the state championship under the 2.5 mile format.

Following her high school career, Ivusic ran collegiately at Butler Community College and Grand View University. 

Ivusic joins Shenandoah's Missy Buttry-Rock, Villisca's Rick O'Rourke and Essex's Suzanne Youngberg Rigg in the cross country wing of the KMA Sports Hall of Fame.
