New Owatonna Hall of Fame Members Thrilled, Humbled by the Honor

2004 Owatonna High School graduate Nicole McCann was an eighth grader when her grandfather Ev Berg was inducted into the OHS Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999. Berg, who passed away in 2012, started the cross country program at OHS and was its longtime coach. McCann fondly remembers running with Berg and hoped she would someday join him in the hall of fame. That day came Friday September 8 when McCann and four others were inducted.

McCann lettered 11 times in cross country and track. She was a semifinalist for Minnesota’s Runner of the Year award in 2001.
