For Meger, it’s been a long, but rewarding road to state cross country meet

New Prague High School senior Katelyn Meger placed sixth at the Section 2AA meet Thursday, Oct. 27, held at the Crown College campus in St. Bonifacius.

Meger qualifies to compete in the Minnesota State High School League State Cross Country Meet Saturday, Nov. 5, at St. Olaf College in Northfield. The achievement marks the first time in the 26-year history of New Prague girls cross country that an athlete has qualified for the state meet.

Meger’s running career began in 2000 when she joined the New Prague Trojan squad as a seventh grader.
