FARGO – Tuesday, September 11, 2018 was a day to reflect on the events that happened in New York City, Washington D.C and Pennsylvania 17 years ago. Locally it was also a time to remember Staff Sgt. Andrew Nelson, who was killed in action while serving in Iraq in 2007.

Prior to joining the armed forces, Nelson – a 2003 graduate of Fargo Shanley High School – played football ran track and was the captain of the cross country team for the Deacons.

To honor Nelson’s military service and dedication to Shanley athletics, a cross country meet is hosted by the school every fall. Tuesday was the 11th running of the Andrew Nelson Metro Classic. A table with photos of Nelson and plaques detailing his military service was displayed for all to see.

Fargo Davies senior Megan Lundstrom won the varsity girls race with a time of 19 minutes, 16 seconds.

Fargo North senior Alex Luz took first in the varsity boys race with a time of 16:33.

Fargo Davies won the boys and girls team competitions.
