NRHEG ends regular season with highest weekly point total in conference

As the cooler weather started to set in, it was time for the marksmen from the NRHEG clay target team to take to the range one last week.

Coming into the week they had a lock on third place in the conference, but a large gap to move into second place. The team answered the challenge with the highest point total for a week of any team the conference this season.

While it wasn't enough to move them up, it was a fine exclamation mark on the season in a conference that was an outstanding challenge from the first week to the last.

The team was led by its top shooter, Evan Dobberstein, with a perfect round of 25 and a round of 24 for a total 49/50 for the night. He was joined by 10 other shooters who turned in a range of scores from 45 to 48, all of which were in the top 20 scores for the week. This was combined with a team-low counting score that was higher than any yet this season to set the mark for a single week of shooting for any team in Conference 15.

"We may not have moved up in the standings," said NRHEG coach Dan Sorum, "But we certainly made the best effort we could have in the attempt."

The NRHEG cross country teams saw their season end with the Section 2A meet at Blue Earth Thursday, Oct. 26.

The boys finished 18th among 22 schools with 496 points. Panthers’ places and times: Daniel Nydegger, 63rd, 18:40.2; Ben Lewer, 69th, 18:55; Kollin Reese, 103rd, 20:01.4; Agro Gushwa, 119th, 20:39.9; Gavin Anderson, 142nd, 22:32.9.

“Our boys competed in top form,” said NRHEG coach Mike Weber. “Daniel ran a new PR. As our senior captain and being with us for the past six years, it was rewarding for all involved to watch Ben do so well this evening. Kollin ran a PR. It was a super race for Kollin’s final cross-country event. It was good for Agro to end the season with one of his strongest outings. Gavin tied his PR with some determined running. I couldn’t be more proud of this group.”

The girls had their usual three runners. Places and times: Madisyn Bueltel, 56th, 22:09; Jade Mely, 85th, 23:21; Mia Williams, 128th, 26:29.
