Nestled in 650 acres of a wooded campus and located on the banks of the scenic Ohio River, Hanover College is a private, liberal arts institution where brains and beauty truly intersect. Their rigorous interdisciplinary academic program with 33 majors attracts the best and the brightest from across the region and beyond.
The Hanover College athletic department sponsors 20 (10 men / 10 women) varsity sports, competing at the NCAA Division III level. Known as the Panthers, Hanover College is a member of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference, a conference comprised of institutions in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.
When asked about her future with the Hanover College Panthers, Alexis had this to say: “Hanover is a dream come true and to have the opportunity to continue my passion for running only makes it better.”
Cross Country coach Jerry Doyle said, “I’m proud of Alexi for pursuing her dream of running in college! I’ve enjoyed having the privilege of coaching her for four years, and I know that she will be successful at the next level. I see her desire to improve, and I know with hard work, she will attain her goals.”
