Dyrdahl competes in national Women's Cross Country meet

Concordia sophomore Lynnette Dyrdahl, Kalispell, Mont., achieved a first for the women's cross country team this fall.

Running in the regional meet held Nov. 7 at the University of Minnesota, she completed the 5,000-meter track with a time of 20:06 to finish 22nd and earn a spot in the national competition. This was the first time a Concordia woman has qualified for the national event. Dyrdahl, along with coach Dr. Paul Frederickson, traveled to Pocatello, Idaho, Nov.21 for the national competition, where she finished the 5,000-meter run with a time of 20:45, placing 77th out of 162 runners.

Prior to the regional meet, Dyrdahl placed 34th in the state meet held Oct.31 at Mankato, taking top honors for the Cobber women. As a team the women placed sixth out of 11 in the state meet and sixth out of 14 in the regional contest.

Another Concordian, freshman Nettie Donovan from Odessa, Wash., almost qualified for the national event. She finished the regional meet with a time of 20:38 for a 34th place finish, exceeding the qualifying time by 16 seconds.

Frederickson said he is pleased with the women's performance this fall and looks forward to an excellent season next year, since no runners will graduate. He has only one junior on the team, and the rest are freshmen and sophomores.
