ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

25 Laps With Casey FitzRandolph (Oct. 30, 2017)

At the age of three, Casey FitzRandolph first stepped onto the ice as a munchkin to perform in a “Wizard of Oz on Ice” production. At the age of four, he took up hockey but realized that he didn’t like the amount of time he had to spend in his hockey pads. One day during the winter of 1979-1980 he heard an ad for the Madison area All-City speed skating meet that would be taking place on the Vilas Park Lagoon. He figured since he had tried other ice skating sports, he would try speed skating. FitzRandolph instantly took to the sport and didn’t stop until he reached his goal of becoming an Olympic Champion 22 years later. 

If you know of an Alumni that you think should be featured in our spotlight section, please reach out to a member of the Alumni Commission.
