Cats edge Dogs at home meet

By Michael Jacobson

The Bulldogs girls' cross country team was edged by New London-Spicer by three points at their home Koronis Invitational on Thursday.

Sophomore Linda Keller won her third race of the fall, besting the field by 27 seconds. She won the individual title at the Koronis Invitational for the first time, after finishing third last year.

In six races this fall, Keller has won three times, placed second once, third once, and fourth once. She earned All State honors last year and is ranked eighth in Class A this fall. The Dogs are ranked 12th as a team in Class A.

Senior Kacy Nehowig also finished in the top ten for the Dogs, running ninth overall. Junior Kaitlyn Frenchick was next for the Dogs in 13th place, while sophomore Bri Jaeger finished 21st. Senior Kirsten Miller completed the Dogs' team score by finishing 56th.

New London-Spicer (97) edged the Dogs (100) by three points for the team title. Minnewaska (111) had three runners in the top ten to finish third.

The Dogs ran without senior Tanis Beireis.

"We ran OK," said coach Darrel Carstens, "and are now heading in the home stretch of the season."
