Reese Bendiksen is from Svolvær and is in her first year with the Vikings cross country ski team. She is enrolled in Bachelor of Science. Reese chose to come to Augustana because it is in a great location, the campus is nice and small and they have a good xc ski team with great coaches and trails.
When Reese is not on the trails running or skiing you can find her with friends and family, at the climbing wall or studying. Her favorite book is The Lord of The Rings and her favorite movie is Cool Runnings and her favorite food is tacos.
One of her favorite inspirational quotes is: “What is important is to win”. Haile Gebrselassie
