LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

A Logan athlete will compete on the division one stage.

Bailey Oettel will run cross country at South Dakota.

The Coyotes are one of the top cross country programs in the Summit League. She said she chose South Dakota over Drake and Wartburg.

"Their program is really good," Oettel said. "I really like the coach and the team. They were really welcoming and just knowing I'd be able to go and run my freshman year was definitely a big reason."
