#10 Maria Torgerson

10 — Maria Torgerson from Red Lodge, Montana.
Age 18.

A second generation musher from Bozeman, Montana, Maria Torgerson started life as a baby in the sled and as a teen  was still on the runners. After her dad, David Torgerson, retired, her love for the dogs’ passion pushed her to find a way back to mushing. Last year, the first time she competed in the Stage Stop Race, she finished a respectable fifth. “I’m extremely grateful for all the support I’ve received, specifically from the Streeper Kennel. It is truly inspirational to work along side these athletes both human and canine.”
