Julie E. Ogden (1985-1988)
Julie Ogden was a phenomenal runner and an outstanding student in the Nursing program. In 1986, she won the NJCAA Cross Country Championship, and in 1987 she was the NJCAA Outdoor Track champion in the 10,000 meters. She was the first female at Alfred State to win national titles in cross country and track. Seven times Julie earned NJCAA All-American status for her athletic accomplishments and was also named NJCAA Acedemic All-American.
Julie won the Regional Championship in cross country in her first and second years. She won numerous regional titles in track and still holds the Regional record for the 1500m in Indoor Track. Julie is also the present record holder for Alfred State in the 10,000m and the 3200m relay.
Julie's accomplishments seem even more impressive because she was a nontraditional student. She is married to Dr. Gary Ogden and raised two daughters Amanda and Maggie while she was competing.
In 1995 Julie was inducted into the NJCAA Coaches' Association Cross Country/Track & Field Hall of Fame. She presently is employed as a nurse at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, NY.
