Nelson impressive in first steeplechase

Monday, April 13, 2009

SIOUX CITY - Cherokee native Kara Nelson, a sophomore at Morningside College, competed in her first-ever steeplechase at Thursday's Northwestern College Red Raider Open track and field meet in Orange City, and turned in an impressive performance.

Nelson, the daughter of Jim and Susan Nelson of Cherokee, won the Women's 3,000 meter steeplechase with a time of 11:28.0 - fast enough to automatically qualify her to compete in the event at the NAIA Outdoor Championships in St. Louis next month.
