Moorhead – A fierce competitor on the track juxtaposed with a sweet personality off it, Anna VanWechel finds a way to add a dash of flair when she prepares for races.

The Minnesota State Moorhead senior likes to spice things up with her fingernails, specifically wearing different bold colors for meets.

“If I have a bad race with a certain color, I have to retire that color,” VanWechel said with a chuckle. “I like bright, obnoxious colors.”

VanWechel hasn’t been forced to retire many nail colors this spring. Most changes in shade have come because she likes the variety. For the record, VanWechel has a teal hue with sparkles ready for the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference track and field outdoor championships, which run Friday and Saturday at the Community Bowl in Bismarck.
