Nelson, Mustangs break school mark

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

SIOUX CITY - Morningside College broke its school record in the Women's Distance Medley Relay during Friday morning's action at the Drake Relays in Des Moines.

The Mustangs' quartet of junior Erin Keitges, sophomore Heather Hoefs, freshman Leah Nielsen, and sophomore Kara Nelson combined for a time of 12:21.57, to carve almost 3 seconds off the former Morningside standard of 12:24.46, which was established in 1993. Morningside finished 11th in the Women's College Division of the event.

Kara Nelson is the daughter of Jim and Susan Nelson of Cherokee, and is a 2007 Cherokee Washington High School graduate.
