ross-2Megan Rossi-Bremer (DGS class of 2003) has been elected to the DGS Athletic Hall of Fame. Megan was a two time All-State performer in track & field as a member of the 4x800m relay and the pole vault.

Megan was an individual state qualifier in the 800m run and the anchor leg on the all-state 4x800m relay team in 2002. She also held the indoor school record in the 800m until it was recently broken 2 years ago.

Megan was even more accomplished as a pole vaulter.  She was one of the pioneers in the girls’ pole vault event in Illinois.  Girls began competing in the pole vault in Illinois when Megan was a sophomore in 2001.  She took up the challenge and became one of the best female vaulters in Illinois in 2002 and 2003, culminating with her 4th place finish in the 2003 state meet.  Megan still holds the DGS school record in the pole vault (11’3”).
