Jen Blue is in her eighth season as the head cross country and track and field coach at Minnesota State University.
Her first Minneota Bug Days race Saturday proved she was able to lead her troops. She won the women’s event and was right on the heels of men’s winner Patrick Crowe.
Blue brought her team to Minneota following an invitation from the family of Kathryn Anundson, who is a second-year Maverick cross country runner.
“It was a fun run,” said Blue, the 2003 North Central Conference Outdoor Track and Field Coach of the Year.
Blue said, “I’ll be running a marathon in a month or so here so I asked the girls if they minded if I run with them.” She’ll be running a marathon in Mankato in a couple of weeks.

Les Josephson graduated from Minneota High School in 1960.
Little did he know, 50 years later he’d return for just the second time as a home-town folk-hero.
The 11-year professional for the Los Angeles Rams not only watched Minneota play Friday night but saw two other Josephsons, Adam and Isaac, play for the Vikings.
“It brought back memories,” said Josephson. “I played eight-man football when I was in high school here so it’s a little bit different game,” Josephson said.
