AOTW: Mattie Shirley-Fairbairn

National Sports

Earlier this month, Mattie Shirley-Fairbairn won her second WDA cross country title as a sophomore for Bismarck High. Running runs in her family, and the “family” atmosphere she gets as she trains with her teammates day in and day out is her favorite part of the sports. Shirley-Fairbairn is getting ready for the state race this Saturday, making her our Athlete of the Week.

(Matti Shirley-Fairbairn, AOTW) “I started running when I was in 5th grade. My parents ran in college, so that kind of got me started. Basically the team. It’s such a great team and you get so close with everyone because you have to come out here and work hard with them everyday and you have a really special relationship with your team.”
