Tuesday, February 12, 2008

SIOUX CENTER - Morningside freshman standout Kara Nelson, a 2007 Cherokee Washington graduate, continued her excellent frosh season Saturday at the Dordt College Invitational in Sioux Center. Nelson won the women's mile run with a time of 5:21.59, the only gold for the Mustang women's team.

Nelson also anchored the Mustang women's 3200-meter relay team, which finished second, but broke the Morningside school mark by nearly six seconds. The Mustang quartet, comprised of senior Annie McInnis, freshman Heather Hoefs, sophomore Erin Keitges and Nelson, turned in a time of 9:50,52, breaking the 15-year-old mark of 9:56.23.
