Paige Wrecke—Mukwonago

Paige has been the head girls cross country coach at Mukwonago High School for the past 10 years where she serves as a School Counselor. She ran cross country and track at Hartford High School where she had the pleasure of being coached by, and learn from, the best-her dad, Rick Brown. She went on to compete all four years in track at the University of Wisconsin- LaCrosse in the pentathlon, 4x400, and 400 meter hurdles. Her last passion projects in the world of cross country and in her previous role on the WIAA advisory were advocating for the girls 5k and the rotation of state starting times. She enjoys running and traveling in her free time, most recently taking a two week train trip with her son from starting in Denver, Co. and ending in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She has run several marathons including Boston in 2011 (3:26) but after tearing her meniscus last year and having surgery in spring she is working her way back into it. She lives in Hartland with her son Camden (10), her husband (as of next Friday) Doug, and his son Mac (14). As of 9/13 she will be the "coach formerly known as Coach Patenaude" and will change to Coach Wrecke. She is very happy to listen to and share anything people are concerned about!
