Nehowig runs third at Little Crow Invite

By Michael Jacobson

The Paynesville girls' cross country placed seventh at the Little Crow Invite last week. The 14-team meet was held at the Little Crow Country Club and was hosted by New London-Spicer.

Junior Kacy Nehowig led the Dogs with a third-place run, recording her second straight top-five finish this fall. She trailed only the Swenson sisters from Lac Qui Parle Valley/Dawson-Boyd. Junior Nikki Swenson, the 2003 Class A champ and 2004 runner-up, won the race by more than a minute, while her ninth grade sister Kelly was second, with Nehowig third.
