Athlete of the Week – Katie Nevdal

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DURAND – Durand senior softball standout Katie Nevdal is our new WREX Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Rock Valley College.

Nevdal has been a key player for the Lady Bulldogs throughout her high school career, who also helped the volleyball team make a run to state last year. Now she’s shining in the circle one more time, with her dad coaching her along the way.

“Really the game is on him in a way, but it is me too,” she said. “He calls everything. I have to have faith in him, that he knows what he’s doing, and he has to have faith in me that I’m doing the right thing too. So we have a trust relationship.”

Nevdal’s dad is cherishing these final moments coaching his daughter.

“I’m enjoying it,” Jake Nevdal said. “It’s been 800-900 games. I take every game and I love it. It’s been a long ride and I’m glad she’s successful. I’m enjoying it and that’s all I can do.”

Katie Nevdal and Durand hope to keep this ride going deep into the spring.
