“I don’t need 20 trophies, I just need to see our program headed in that direction and make it more normal for Stevens Women to qualify and compete at that (national) level.”
This week we sat down with Stevens Institute of Technology star, Amy Regan. Amy’s career at Stevens was something no one predicted. Her senior year travels in high school forced her to go out for the cross country team instead of her first sport, soccer. As she was looking for colleges, she asked the Stevens coach if she would be able to join the team. From there, Amy ramped up her training from 1 mile a day in high school to 60-80 miles a week in college. From her one season in high school to her first ear in college, Amy took a leap into the unknown. She was 68th at her high school conference meet, a year later she was 40th at D3 Nationals.
Amy continued to progress throughout her college career while taking on a leadership role. While she enjoyed her national success, she wanted more than anything to run with her team at the national meet. By her senior year, Amy was at the line with her team when she won her second XC national title.
All in all, Amy took home 6 National Titles (2 in XC, 4 in Track), 8 All America Awards (1 in XC, 7 in Track), and has 3 Top 10 times of All Time in the Indoor 3k and 5k as well as the 10k.
Amy continued her passion for running by qualifying for the Olympic Trials Marathon in 2020. She did so after her debut marathon. She looks to qualify once again for the 2024 Olympic Trials. You can follow Amy on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/amyregan/
