Girls finish sixth at home meet

By Michael Jacobson

Sophomore Kacy Nehowig led the Bulldogs girls' cross country to a sixth-place finish at their lone home meet of the season last week.

The Dogs finished sixth in the 13-team meet at Koronis Hills on Thursday afternoon despite missing two top runners.

girls cc Nehowig led the way with her third third-place finish this season, covering the 4,000-meter course in 15:45. Nehowig has four top-four finishes in five meets so far this fall.v Eighth grader Kally Felling ran second for the Dogs, outsprinting several runners to the finish line and ending in 28th place. Ninth graders Melanie Koerner (34th), Kelsey Miller (38th), and Tarin Beireis (47th) completed the Dogs' team score.

Ninth grader Melanie Koerner finished 34th at the Dogs invite last week.

New London-Spicer (63) edged St. Cloud Cathedral (91) for this year's team title. Cathedral, which was the Class A state runner-up last year, was paced by winner Beth Tacl and runner-up Libby Zupanc, who both finished in the top ten at state individually last year. Tacl, who was second at state, and Zupanc were the only runners to best Nehowig on Thursday.

Coach Darrel Carstens said he was pleased with the way the Dogs ran in the meet, better than at their previous meet, but they need to continue to improve as the conference, subsection, and section meets approach.

This week, the Dogs ran at Becker, the site of the section meet, on Tuesday. Next week, the Dogs will compete in the West Central Conference North Meet, hosted by Sauk Centre on Tuesday, Oct. 12.
