Maureen is one of Mahomet-Seymour's most accomplished high school track and cross-country runners. Her work ethic and pursuit of excellence in these two sports is legendary.
As a Bulldog, Maureen placed 7th in the 2001 AA IHSA State Cross Country Finals. She was the first athlete in school history to earn All-State honors in AA Cross-Country. (IHSA later changed from a two class system to a three class system).
In track, Maureen was a 6-time AA All-State runner in the 1600 and 3200 events. In 2002, she was the state champion in the 1600 meters. This was the school's first female state champion in the AA class. She was a 4-time state placer in the 3200 meters. Her times of 4:54.9 in the 1600 and 10:44.2 in the 3200 meters are still school records. Maureen teamed with her sisters Eileen, Mary, and Megan to place 4th in the 3200 meter relay state finals.
Upon graduation, Maureen took her running talents to the highly respected girls track program at University of Arkansas. While at Arkansas, she was a 2004 NCAA All-American in the 3,000 meter steeplechase. She was also the SEC champion in 2004 and 2005. In 2005, she earned a spot on the ESPN The Magazine's All-American First Team. Maureen's college career was cut short by injury and was not able to compete her senior year.
