Trinity Health Sports Medicine is pleased to announce the addition of Carolyn Rygg to its team of certified athletic trainers. Rygg began her new duties at the Dakota College at Bottineau on July 1.
Originally from Mayville, Rygg attended the University of Mary, majoring in athletic training. She was also a graduate assistant in athletics for the Marauders for the 2018-19 school year after earning her Board of Certification credential.
“During my undergraduate career, I enjoyed working with collegiate athletes but always missed my small-town roots,” Rygg said. “My career plan was to work as an athletic trainer at a college in North Dakota, and possibly teach a class. Dakota College gave me all these opportunities.”
Rygg noted she is excited about the experiences she will gain working with the Lumberjacks, as well as the opportunity to help the athletes, who have been without an athletic trainer for the past year. “I’m very thankful to be able to stay in North Dakota near my family and join an already very welcoming team at Trinity Health and the City of Bottineau.”
“Carolyn came highly recommended by a colleague in the Bismarck area,” said Robyn Gust, Sports Medicine Manager. “I feel her work ethic and positive attitude is a very good fit for the position at Dakota College at Bottineau and we are excited she has joined the Trinity Health Sports Medicine Team.”
