Lane Versteeg


Lane Versteeg is OHS’s male Triple A Award winner and is up for the award at the state level.

Lane Versteeg is in soccer, football and basketball. Versteeg has done what few have ever done, play two fall sports at once. He has earned multiple accolades in soccer from all conference in the Big 9 to the US Marine Corps-Semper Fidelis All-American  for soccer . He has also been on the varsity basketball team  for two years. His leadership in these sports also sets him apart. He may not be the most vocal but he leads with his actions and always does what’s best for the team. This led him to being a captain on this year’s soccer team.

Versteeg excels in the classroom. His hard work and dedication to learning has earned him a spot at the top of the class rank. The most impressive part of his academics is taking all AP classes and doing exceedingly well. Balancing a tough school schedule along with sports, he also finds time to fit in DECA, NHS and student council. 

Choir and orchestra allow Versteeg’s high school experience to be diversified. Versteeg said, “It has always been a priority of mine to be part of a wide variety of activities.”He takes great pride in his performance, as he is a first chair in orchestra and in the top choir at Owatonna. Versteeg also improves those around him. Ms. Sandra Justice said,“He knows that our ensemble is about each individual doing what needs to be done so the ensemble can succeed.”

Versteeg’s hard work in and out of the classroom has paid off not only at the  section  level, but also at the state level.
